POLITICS OF BIG DATA CONFERENCE - King's College London - MAY 8TH 2015


"Big Data" is a contested term describing the increasing pervasiveness
of data generation, gathering and mining in our society. The
unprecedented market success Facebook, Google, and related digital,
media, and marketing corporations is predicated on Big Data.
Furthermore, as demonstrated by the Snowden revelations on the NSA and
GCHQ, Big Data also provides new means for mass surveillance. Yet, this
is not the whole story. Data is a site of political struggle. Beyond its
value to state and capital, Big Data affords myriad opportunities for
new forms of creative and political engagement. Open data initiatives,
information leaks, and data-driven cultural projects are but early steps
toward more democratic uses of the data we generate in our everyday
lives. This conference will explore the contested and multifaceted
nature of the politics of Big Data, covering both critiques of existing
data-driven power dynamics as well as possible alternatives.
