One-Day Seminar (Sept 22, 2023)

Examining the Uses of Data by People and Organizations in a World of Algorithms: From Data Literacy to Data Valences.

Big Data produced daily via mobile applications, intelligent systems, connected objects or via platforms or social networks has contributed to the emergence of a data market on a global scale. The growth of this highly lucrative data collection and analysis market is disrupting not only the healthcare sector, the cultural and creative industries and education, but also our democratic systems and political and public organizations. This raises several questions regarding the production, creation and aggregation of data, as well as its use, interpretation, misappropriation and even abuse or discrimination. 

The aim of this seminar is to bring together researchers, students and people interested to reflect on the question of how data is used by people and organizations, when it is produced by various artificial intelligence systems.
