Big Data Discourses

Dr. Felix Victor Münch presents a peer-reviewed presentation on "Preconditions, Challenges, and Solutions for Enabling Large Scale Online Discourse Observation" at the international conference "Big Data Discourses: Communicating, Deliberating, and Imagining Datafication."
The presentation is based on learnings from the development of the Social Media Observatory (SMO), about which Felix Victor Münch published an article in the journal "Publizistik" together with Dr. Gregor WiedemannJan Philipp RauPhillip Kessling, and PD Dr. Jan-Hinrik Schmidt. In this article, the authors describe the basic principles, ethical and legal considerations, the technical implementation and the resulting tools and data collections of the SMO.
The SMO has been developed as an open science research infrastructure within the Research Institute Social Cohesion (RISC) since 2020. It focuses on the long-term monitoring of public communication on selected platforms and online news media to answer social science research questions.

About the Conference
The conference focuses on the media framing of big data. The aim is to clarify in which publics and by which actors the topic is discussed, which forms of data use and data aggregation are addressed and how the discourse on Big Data is reflected in political decisions. The public debate about big data, the opportunities and potentials associated with it, provide information about the scope for shaping society in dealing with new technologies.
