Youtube continues to not like my blog. No hard feelings.
I posted this because it reminded me of how algorithms aren’t always right. Neither is any technology. For example, this clip is from a TV show called Better Off Ted where the company all the characters work at installing a technology that “doesn’t see black people.” It reminded me of Kitchins, “Algorithms then are often ‘out of control’ in the sense that their outcomes are some- times not easily anticipated, producing unexpected effects in terms of their work in the world (Mackenzie, 2005).” (pg. 21)
Once more IFTTT has failed me, so I uploaded this manually.
I loved this video because it reminded me that not all technology is out to hurt me. Sometimes I get lost in the readings, become overwhelmed with these ideas that technology just wants to “take humanity for all its got.” This video reminded me that that isn’t always the case. Thanks RDJ!
