The Tracked Society: Interdisciplinary Approaches on Online Tracking

On the workshop of the interdisciplinary research project on the societal aspects of Big Data ABIDA (Assessing Big Data) at the University of Amsterdam Wiebke Loosen, Amélie Pia Heldt and Stephan Dreyer will give a talk about "Tracking, Datafication and Consequences for (Mis-)Conceptions of Journalism's Public Functions".

The interdisciplinary project ABIDA (Assessing Big Data), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, explores social opportunities and risks of the generation, linking and analysis of huge amounts of data and develops options for political action, research and development.

ABIDA approaches the topic of Big Data from a fundamentally interdisciplinary perspective. Sociologists, philosophers, economists, legal and political scientists work hand in hand on this. The project aims to jointly gather existing knowledge about dealing with big data, generate new knowledge, deepen the knowledge, and make it accessible to the widest possible public. The scientists will examine the societal impacts associated with Big Data by using the methods of technology assessment oriented to dialogue and participation.
