Join our Winter School:
The Power of Algorithms?
A Sociological Perspective
Shopping on Amazon, searching with Google, communicating on Facebook – in all these cases algorithms are at work. They organize and rule the attention economy of the media.
The Winter School asks from a sociological point of view: What are algorithms actually doing? When and how do they shape the social? And how is that observable for sociology when most algorithms still are a business secret?
Join us at the University of Würzburg's Institute of Political Science and Sociology to engage both in theoretical discussions about how Big Data can be perceived sociologically and in discussions with experts from practice.
