To my personal website. Here you will find details about my research, my teaching, and perhaps my personal life.
With Sune Lehmann, I am arranging the talk series The Science of the Predicted Human. We invite world-leading scholars to Copenhagen to present their work on algorithms, technology and human behavior. The series is a collaboration between the Technical University of Denmark, the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science and the Pioneer Center for Artificial Intelligence and is arranged with generous support by the Villum Foundation and the Pioneer Center for Artificial Intelligence.
Being human in 2023 implies being the target of a vast number of predictive infrastructures. In healthcare, algorithms predict not only potential pharmacological cures to disease but also their possible future incidence of those diseases. In governance, citizens are exposed to algorithms that predict - not only their day-to-day behaviors to craft better policy - but also to algorithms that attempt to predict, shape and manipulate their political attitudes and behaviors. In education, children’s emotional and intellectual development is increasingly the product of at-home and at-school interventions shaped around personalized algorithms. And humans worldwide are increasingly subject to advertising and marketing algorithms whose goal is to target them with specific products and ideas they will find palatable. Algorithms are everywhere - as are their intended as well as unintended consequences. The series is arranged with generous support by the Villum Foundation and the Pioneer Center for Artificial Intelligence.
