luiy's curator insight, February 26, 2013 9:03 AM

Dans les sciences, l’économie ou la politique, les activités humaines sont de plus en plus fondées sur la gestion et l’analyse d’énormes masses de données numériques (Je traduis par « masses de données » ou « données massives » l’anglais « big data »). Même si nous n’en n’avons pas clairement conscience, notre société devient progressivement datacentrique. Parallèlement à cette évolution, nos communications – émettrices et réceptrices de données – reposent sur une infrastructure de plus en plus complexe de manipulation automatique de symboles que j’appelle le médium algorithmique. Mais aussi bien la société datacentrique que le médium algorithmique sur lequel elle repose n’en sont encore qu’à leurs timides commencements. L’essentiel de leur croissance et de leur développement reste encore à venir. De plus, les esprits restent fascinés par la puissance de diffusion de messages offerte par l’Internet, une puissance qui n’est pas loin d’avoir atteint son terme, alors qu’un immense espace – encore inexploré – s’ouvre à la transformation et à l’analyse du déluge de données que nous produisons quotidiennement. A l’avant-garde de la révolution algorithmique, IEML (ou tout autre système ayant les mêmes propriétés) va démocratiser la catégorisation et l’analyse automatique de l’océan de données. Son utilisation dans les médias sociaux va créer un environnement encore plus propice qu’aujourd’hui à l’apprentissage collaboratif et à la production de connaissances massivement distribuée. Ce faisant, IEML (ou quelqu’autre code sémantique universel) va contribuer à faire émerger le médium algorithmique du futur et permettre une réflexion de l’intelligence collective sur l’édification de la société datacentrique à venir.

Ambient intelligence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ambient intelligence

In computing, ambient intelligence ( AmI) refers to electronic environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people. Ambient intelligence is a vision on the future of consumer electronics, telecommunications and computing that was originally developed in the late 1990s for the time frame 2010-2020.

A Vectorial Semantics Approach to Personality Assessment

A Vectorial Semantics Approach to Personality Assessment | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it
Personality assessment and, specifically, the assessment of personality disorders have traditionally been indifferent to computational models. Computational personality is a new field that involves the automatic classification of individuals' personality traits that can be compared against gold-standard labels. In this context, we introduce a new vectorial semantics approach to personality assessment, which involves the construction of vectors representing personality dimensions and disorders, and the automatic measurements of the similarity between these vectors and texts written by human subjects. We evaluated our approach by using a corpus of 2468 essays written by students who were also assessed through the five-factor personality model. To validate our approach, we measured the similarity between the essays and the personality vectors to produce personality disorder scores. These scores and their correspondence with the subjects' classification of the five personality factors reproduce patterns well-documented in the psychological literature. In addition, we show that, based on the personality vectors, we can predict each of the five personality factors with high accuracy.

Quantified Self Technology

Quantified Self Technology | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it

If leveraged correctly, the quantified self-movement could provide valuable patient insights as well as reduce long-term costs for healthcare brands.

 

But before talking about the benefits to brands, we must first understand their importance to the consumer. After all, it’s the customer (or in this case, patient), that should always come first. These products don’t just monitor activity or measure how long you’re at the gym. They allow users to connect their actions with the effect of those actions. Quantified self products engage the wearer with their lifestyle goals, stress levels and current healthcare regimens. This unprecedented awareness of one’s actions can provide insights into behaviors that are negatively affecting health.

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.
