Surplus and the Immaterial: Political Notes on the 'Industrial Revolution of Data'
Deep Search conference 2010
Matteo Pasquinelli (28.05.2010)
Digital information is growing out of measure, out of the storage and computing capacity of the world, the Economist reports (Feb 2010). As usual the Economist appears optimistic and comfortable about new business opportunities, but some data provided by the report itself point to a structural contradiction. The question is whether the technological limits of the Turing universe will unveil a political limit, i.e. if the excess of social cooperation and communication feeding the mediasphere may turn into something else, into a new social composition. Or will capitalism once again reorganise its governance and the 'industrial revolution of data' will constitute just a further economic regime?
Search Engine Bias and the Public Interest Q&A
Deep Search conference 2010
Elisabeth van Couvering (28.05.2010)
Is it the job of private companies to ensure that we as citizens have fair access to the content of the Internet? Will technological development or market pressures ensure high quality search results in the future? Are "relevance" and "customer satisfaction" (the two most important quality metrics for search engine engineers) enough?

Visions of Organizing the World

Living in a world of the formless chaos of sensations there is a need to impose order and to find extensions of the mind to organize experience. Since the early Enlightenment enormous efforts were invested into the creation of a system of universal classification. The 17th century brought up the idea that manifold memories do not have to be stored through techniques of ars memoria but can be encoded in scientific classification and are deducible through the algorithmic logic of scientific formulas. The 20th century showed that it is logically impossible to construct a single grand "metalogic". At the dawn of the 21century new visions are animating attempts to organize the worlds information.

Sociometry, Networks and Classification

The power of combining aggregate behavioral data for social data mining in collecting massive amounts of information and to analyze this in the context of longtime records allows to identify aggregate human behavior and uncover trends in society. Electronic networks can be instrumentalized and orchestrated to exploit the individual and to panoptic diagrams of reality mining in societies of control. At the same time social networking technologies can provide a powerful instrument for democratic participation and empowerment.

From Sociometry to Social Networks. Networking as Technique of the Social
Deep Search conference 2010
Sebastian Giessmann (28.05.2010)
"Social Networks" -- the peculiarity of this ubiquitous term rarely ever draws attention. But in the history of networks, the microsocial approach in sociology is a surprisingly late event. Starting with Jacob Levy Moreno's inauguration of sociometry in the 1930s, microlevel actor networks form a crucial part in a twofold genealogy of knowledge. My presentation therefore focuses on the co-evolution of sociological theory, statistics and the rise of the digital computer. What is the relation between network visualization and non-visual logic of matrices and the databases which are now powering the massive social networking sites? How has American Sociology been constructing the scientific facts that today inform the relational approach to our lives? And finally, what power relations are inscribed in all those everyday sociometric appliances and gadgets of the network society?

Google Before Google, or, On the History of Search
Deep Search conference 2010
Chad Wellmon (28.05.2010)
This talk is a contribution to a history of Google before Google. It recounts but one essential chapter in the story of the recurring human desire to "organize the world’s information" – Google’s stated goal. Eighteenth-century European Enlightenment was less a renunciation of "immaturity" than an organizing system of printed footnotes, indices, indexes, collations and cross-references. Enlightenment was bibliographic. Enlightenment was a series of tools that accelerated search and linking capacities of its central medium: print.
Critique of Search and the Problem of Knowledge
Deep Search conference 2010
Yuk Hui (28.05.2010)
Search engines must be understood from the perspective of their relation to knowledge and understanding. The term does not merely refer to Google or Yahoo!, but to the 'extended mind' that challenges our very understanding of knowledge and is made possible by the convergence of different disciplines across computer science, such as semantic web, AI, or ubicomp. The ubiquitous availability of information seems to ease the access and accumulation of knowledge. On the other hand, knowledge conditioning access itself is becoming universal and absolute: what matters now is probably not the problem of access, but rather the conception of knowledge and understanding through the extended mind. First, Kant's opposition between rational knowledge and historical knowledge, and the positioning of algorithmatic knowledge in such an opposition must be re-assessed. Second, we must re-access Durkheim's "social categories" that are now becoming synchronized in favor of a unified, transcendental knowledge in its becoming, especially today when web ontology becomes the key to information retrieval. These two reassessments attempt to reinterpret our understanding of knowledge, with respect to cognition and sociality in the critique of search.

FUTURE NON STOP

...is a semantically connected content repository, which contains documents on 15 years of new practices in art and media.

Based on an extensive archive going back to 1994 the site collects materials that serve as important reference documents in the field of new media, politics, and art and makes them accessible to a wider public. Instead of a hierarchically structured archive an experimental navigation interface opens up new ways to explore large information nodes. Documents are associated by a range of tag that allow to filter relevance according to topics and issue relations. ASCR, short for Advanced Semantic Content Repository, is the open source information architecture and "editing back end" of Future Non Stop.

Future Non Stop is a project of:
Institute for New Culture Technologies/ t0.
