How will you define the “Culture of Algorithms”?


My preferred phrase is “algorithmic culture,” which I use in the first instance to refer to the the ways in which computers, running complex mathematical formulae, engage in what’s often considered to be the traditional work of culture: the sorting, classifying, and hierarchizing of people, places, objects, and ideas. The Google example from above illustrates the point, although it’s also the case elsewhere on the internet. Facebook engages in much the same work in determining which of your friends, and which of their posts, will appear prominently in your news feed. The same goes for shopping sites and video or music streaming services, when they offer you products based on the ones you (or someone purportedly like you) have already consumed.

 

What’s important to note, though, is the way in which algorithmic culture then feeds back to produce new habits of thought, conduct, and expression that likely wouldn’t exist in its absence—a culture of algorithms, as it were. The worry here, pointed out by Eli Pariser and others, is that this culture tends to reinforce more than it challenges one’s existing preferences or ways of doing things. This is what is often called “personalization,” though Pariser calls it a “you loop” instead. By the same token, it is possible for algorithmic systems to introduce you to cultural goods that you might not have encountered otherwise. Today, culture may only be as good as its algorithms.

FREE EBOOK: Project Gutenberg – More Than Just Free Books, Mark O'Neill | Digital preservation and history | Scoop.it

Angela Alcorn:

"If you’ve heard of Project Gutenberg, you probably know it for its vast collection of free public domain books. But do you know everything it offers and how to make the best of the site?

With an army of volunteers scanning, proofreading, and editing public domain works, being able to discover obscure works of literature is now easier than ever. Project Gutenberg, which has over 45,000 books on offer (at the time of writing), aims to ensure that no book will ever truly disappear. Project Gutenberg also offers audiobooks and the chance to help get involved in the project.

FREE EBOOK: Project Gutenberg – More Than Just Free Books

Read online or download PDF, EPUB version free of charge; Kindle version $1

 

 

This guide, written by MakeUseOf’s own Mark O’Neill will teach you:

about the concept of public domain workshow to find and use audiobooks through Librivoxthe quickest way to self-publish your own bookshow distributed proofreading works and how to get involvedsome cool tools and tricks of the Project Gutenberg siteand will suggest some great starting points for your reading."
