THE INFORMED CITIZEN IN A DIGITAL SOCIETY
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.
