PhD study of Jérémie Poiroux

You are being or have been asked by Jérémie Poiroux to be in a doctoral research study of the impact and design of algorithms, automation and decision-helping programs in organisations.

About the study

  • Title: The design and impact of algorithms in organisations
  • Research institutions: CNRS (Centre Marc Bloch, Berlin) and EHESS (GSPR, Paris)
  • Directors: Camille Roth (CNRS) and Francis Chateauraynaud (EHESS)

The purpose is to study the conditions surrounding the use, the design and the implementation process of algorithms, softwares, services or programs which may be used for decision- making helping or automation. This is a very contemporary debate related to algorithmic power, transparency and, more broadly, to the effects of computer programs in organisations like companies or public administrations. Part of the research relies on anonymized interviews with practitioners, managers, engineers and staff members who could help shed light on the use and the conception workflow of those programs. Ultimately, this research may be presented as papers, communications, a PhD thesis (and a book) based on anonymous interviews.

Your participation

I am willing to participate to the interview proposed to me in connection with the research project “The design and impact of algorithms in organisations”; led by Jérémie Poiroux (CNRS/EHESS, Paris). I have been informed of the objectives of this research described above. I have been informed, I agree with and I understand that:

  • The collection and access of personal data is limited to the exclusive use of the project team of Jérémie Poiroux, within the objectives explained above;
  • All collected data will be secured with encryption measures in an encrypted archive storage at CNRS. The access rights to the data will be furthermore secured by a personal ID and password;
  • As the project is built for sociological research reasons, the data will be stored for the lifetime of the project until five (5) years after the end of the study;
  • In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679, I will be able to have access and, if necessary, rectify or delete of my data. To do so, I can send an email as follows: to poiroux[at], cc. roth[at];
  • CNRS is committed to ensure the respect of the data protection principles in force in Europe and in France by their staff and eventual subcontractors.
