THE INFORMED CITIZEN IN A DIGITAL SOCIETY

657 views
As more and more information is algorithmically mediated how can we still be informed citizens?

This is the main question external lecturer Martina Mahnke explores in her research on algorithmic media. Specifically, she examines which communicative dynamics shape the algorithm-user-relationship.

Studies on algorithms tend to overlook the role of the user, which plays a much larger role than current research acknowledges. Therefore, Martina proposes a shift of perspective from algorithmic structure towards the algorithm-user-relation.

In this video Martina summarizes her research and explains how we can 
become more active and well-informed users of the Internet.
