How does technology amplify our biases? Where does human agency lie in complex, networked systems? What is the distinction between a "network" versus a "community?" These and many more questions explored in this deep-dive into social media and the relationship of digital technology to our everyday lives.From Douglas: "This week, my journey to make sense of digital society - and to challenge my own underlying assumptions about the promise and peril of social media - I visited my friend danah boyd. We met up at The Data & Society Research Institute, which she founded in 2014 to explore the social and cultural issues arising from data-centric and automated technologies. What makes her work unique is that it’s based less on thought experiments than on observations from the real world. That’s part of why I waited until danah could make time for an in-person discussion, which we had in a little meeting space at the always busy Data & Society office in Chelsea, Manhattan."

The Risks and Rewards of Big Data, Algorithms, and Machine Learning, with danah boyd
Carnegie Council Audio Podcast
How do we analyze vast swaths of data and who decides what to collect? For example, big data may help us cure cancer, but the choice of data collected for police work or hiring may have built-in biases, explains danah boyd. "All the technology is trying to do is say, 'What can we find of good qualities in the past and try to amplify them in the future?' It's always trying to amplify the past. So when the past is flawed, it will amplify that."
