Who rules the internet? AI, Algorithms or the big 5? How does the internet influence the proliferation of the values that its platforms, services and infrastructures embody, and what spaces of creative resistance persist?

Three outstanding speakers took part in a discussion of rule-making and rule-breaking on the internet during the #AoIR2016 conference. The discussion was moderated by Cornelius Puschmann, researcher at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG).

21:20 Kate Crawford is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research New York City, a Visiting Professor at MIT’s Center for Civic Media, and a Senior Fellow at NYU’s Information Law Institute. Her research addresses the social impacts of big data, and she’s currently writing a new book on data and power with Yale University Press.

34:10 Carolin Gerlitz is professor for digital media and methods at the University of Siegen. Her research addresses quantification and valuation in social media and the role of app ecologies. She is also a member of the Digital Methods Initiative Amsterdam and works on digital research methods for studying platforms and mobile media.

44:31 Fieke Jansen researches and writes on the Politics of Data and digital shadows at Tactical Tech. She hopes to bring more transparency to the global data industry. Prior to moving to Berlin, Fieke worked on the intersection of the internet, social change and security, working at Hivos to set up and manage their digital emergency programme for human rights defenders and activists. She also co-authored a book called Digital AlterNatives.
