Politics of algorithms : Workshop of the ANR Project “Algopol”

The first workshop of the Algopol project is going to take place on September 24-25, 2013, at Centre Marc Bloch. The project focuses on the understanding of how information is being filtered and sourced on the Internet and its various communities — including blogs, forums, online media of the French and German digital public spaces, as well as mainstream platforms such as facebook, twitter, or wikipedia. Ultimately, Algopol aims to deconstruct (in order to reconstruct) some of the algorithms underlying Internet information filtering.
