Klout, Triberr, paper.li, and the future of content curation | Information Curation | Curadoria de Informaçåo | Scoop.it

"Content curation is the searching, selecting, and sharing of valuable content on a specific subject. Selection has traditionally been done by humans, and indeed, some definitions of content curation specify that it should be done by humans, but in practice it is more and more often done by machines. I think automated curation is a sound idea; it is plausible the computers can curate instead of merely aggregate, although the success of its implementation remains to be seen."

How many pictures?

How many pictures? | Information Curation | Curadoria de Informaçåo | Scoop.it

In 1999, the peak of the film-camera industry, consumers took around 80bn photos (according to Kodak). We're taking far more now, but how many more?  At least 2 trillion, maybe double that, maybe more.

The Age of Post-Truth Politics

The Age of Post-Truth Politics | Information Curation | Curadoria de Informaçåo | Scoop.it
Empty description
giselle beiguelman's insight:
"We are in the middle of a transition from a society of facts to a society of data. During this interim, confusion abounds surrounding the exact status of knowledge and numbers in public life, exacerbating the sense that truth itself is being abandoned. The place to start in understanding this transition is with the spread of “smart” technologies into everyday life, sometimes called the “internet of things.” Thanks to the presence of smartphones and smartcards in our pockets, the dramatic uptake of social media, the rise of e-commerce as a means of purchasing goods and services, and the spread of sensory devices across public spaces, we leave a vast quantity of data in our wake as we go about our daily activities. Like statistics or other traditional facts, this data is quantitative in nature. What’s new is both its unprecedented volume (the “big” in big data) and also the fact that it is being constantly collected by default, rather than by deliberate expert design. Numbers are being generated much faster than we have any specific use for. But they can nevertheless be mined to get a sense of how people are behaving and what they are thinking."

Facebook and Engineering the Public – The Message – Medium

Facebook and Engineering the Public – The Message – Medium | Information Curation | Curadoria de Informaçåo | Scoop.it
First Monday, Volume 19, Number 7
giselle beiguelman's insight:
Today, more and more, not only can corporations target you directly, they can model you directly and stealthily. They can figure out answers to questions they have never posed to you, and answers that you do not have any idea they have. Modeling means having answers without making it known you are asking, or having the target know that you know. This is a great information asymmetry, and combined with the behavioral applied science used increasingly by industry, political campaigns and corporations, and the ability to easily conduct random experiments (the A/B test of the said Facebook paper), it is clear that the powerful have increasingly more ways to engineer the public, and this is true for Facebook, this is true for presidential campaigns, this is true for other large actors: big corporations and governments. (And, in fact, a study published in Nature, dissected at my peer-reviewed paper linked below shows that Facebook can alter voting patterns, and another study shows Facebook likes can be used to pretty accurately model your personality according to established psychology measures).
