Vlaams-Nederlands Huis deBuren, start 19h30
CPDP and Constant organise an evening program in deBuren around the shadow effects of Big Data. Researchers and experts Geoffrey Bowker, Solon Barocas and Antoinette Rouvroy will present us their latest ideas, and will comment on some of the local Brussels’ experiments developed and framed by a group of artists during their residency in deBuren. Their respective views will be challenged by moderator Seda Gürses and the people present in the audience.
Geoffrey Bowker is a respected voice in the reflection on Big Data and the importance of looking at the values represented in the design of knowledge systems. Antoinette Rouvroy coined the concept of ’Algorithmic government’, to name decision making that is based on statistics. Solon Barocas is . Solon Barocas is a postdoctoral Research Associate at the Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University and Seda Gürses is ex-Brussels inhabitant and post-doctoral researcher at New York University.

* Friday 30th January: Cqrrelations @ Transmediale
18h30-20h Central stage of café
Dick Reckard, An Mertens, Brendan Howell and Catherine Lenoble will present some ideas developed during ’Cqrrelations’ (pronounce crummylations, querylations…), the latest Constant work session in Brussels. The work session was inspired by their work with Algolit, the Constant workgroup which deals with the intersection of text, language and code. They experimented amongst other things with text analysis tools developed by researchers from CLiPS at the University of Antwerp. The session used datasets built from large corpora of natural language to build systems that can accurately guess the gender and age of writers and even find probable lies in written text. After the presentation they will perform the Markov Chain algorithm using analog techniques.
