Event Description

The era of datacentrism and infoexplosion, that is embodied in the unprecedented expansion of Big Data -understood as the increasingly sophisticated processing of infinite data bases- presents a fundamental change of ontological dimensions in the operations of power and the social body and demands new critical and creative tools that may help understand the extent and depth of these changes, facilitating new modes of resistance and response.

In the framework of a planetary euphoria that present Big Data as the panacea of a new economy and world order some critical voices are emerging, yet current discourses around Big Data require further deepening into the novel issues it raises while understanding the obsoleteness of prior discursive and political frameworks in relation to it.

Beyond the discourses that limit themselves to the defense of privacy or those that advocate public or open data, we should perhaps ask ourselves how far Big Data entails a dissapearing of both the private and the public in a new logic of power and control that requires novel critical and creative strategies.

It is therefore necessary to define which are the conditions of possibility of data, what is their ontology and economy, in order to define anecology and politics of data and a new horizon of alternatives.

I'm sorry I cannot make this panel. There is a group of us at Arizona State University exploring similar issues around big data, privacy and the quantified self. (Website to be up and running this summer). I look forward to hearing about future events regarding this subject.
