  • AI as super-controversy: Eliciting AI and society controversies with an
           extended expert community in the UK

    • Authors: Noortje Marres, Michael Castelle, Beatrice Gobbo, Chiara Poletti, James Tripp
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Following the release of large language models in the late 2010s, the backers of this new type of artificial intelligence (AI) publicly affirmed that the technology is controversial and harmful to society. This situation sets contemporary AI apart from 20th-century controversies about technnoscience, such as nuclear power and genetically modified (GM) foods, and disrupts established assumptions concerning public controversies as occasions for technological democracy. In particular, it challenges the idea that such controversies enable inclusion and collective processes of problem definition (‘problematisation’) across societal domains. In this paper, we show how social research can contribute to addressing this challenge of AI controversies by adopting a distinctive methodology of controversy analysis: controversy elicitation. This approach actively selects, qualifies and evaluates controversies in terms of their capacity to problematise AI across the science and non-science binary. We describe our implementation of this approach in a participatory study of recent AI controversies, conducted through consultation with UK experts in AI and society. Combining an online questionnaire, social media analysis and a participatory workshop, our study suggests that civil society actors have developed distinctive strategies of problematisation that counter the strategic affirmation of AI’s controversiality by its proponents and which centre on the public mobilisation of AI-related incidents: demonstrations of bias, accidents and walkouts. Crucially, this emphasis on ‘AI frictions’ does not result in the fragmentation of AI controversies, but rather enables the articulation of AI as a ‘super-controversy’: the explication of connections between technical propositions, situated troubles and structural problems in society (discrimination, inequalities and corporate power).

  • The valorization of interactions. Gift exchange, power and value creation
           on digital platforms

    • Authors: Oliver Nachtwey, Simon Schaupp
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Technology companies are often worth billions, but they still must make their money through advertising. The research literature on the value creation of data-driven platform companies often refers to the expropriation of data or the exploitation of users. This article proposes a relational approach to the understanding of value creation on digital platforms such as social media channels or free internet services. To this end, it combines Marxian and anthropological value theory. Accordingly, the interactions of platform users are understood as asymmetrical practices of gift exchange. This exchange of digital gifts forms the condition of production for the value creation of internet platforms, and is reproduced continuously by their asymmetrical field of interaction. Here it is not the individual who is exploited, but rather the community of those who interact in a particular field. This condition is anchored in these platforms’ terms and conditions, which stipulate that users share their data not only with each other, but also with the company, thereby enabling a three-step process of data commodification by the platform. First, the data are appropriated as use values by the platforms in order to optimize their own services. Subsequently, a secondary commodification takes place, which, unlike other value creation processes, is decoupled from the use value of the data. Third, there is a process of cybernetization, in which the ability to influence users is sold to third parties as a commodity.

  • Justitia ex machina: The impact of an AI system on legal decision-making
           and discretionary authority

    • Authors: Daan Kolkman, Floris Bex, Nitin Narayan, Manuella van der Put
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Governments increasingly use algorithms to inform or supplant decision-making. Artificial Intelligence systems in particular are considered objective, consistent and efficient decision-makers, but have also been shown to be fallible. Furthermore, the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) in government is fraught with challenges which are only partly understood and rarely studied in practice. In this paper, we draw on science and technology studies and human computer interaction and report on a critical case study of the development and use of an AI system for processing traffic violation appeal at a Dutch court. Although much empirical work on algorithms in practice is primarily observational in nature, we employ a canonical action research approach and actively participate in the development of the AI system. We draw on data collected in the form of interviews, observations, documents and a user-experiment. Based on this material we provide: 1. An in-depth empirical account of the tensions between street-level bureaucrats, screen-level bureaucrats and street-level algorithms; 2. An analysis of the differences between decisions made by, with and without the AI system and find that use of the AI systems impacts decisions made by legal experts; 3. A confirmation of earlier work that finds AI systems can best be applied in support of legal-decision making and demonstrate how the decision-making process of the traffic violation cases may mitigate some of the risks of algorithmic decision-making.

  • Epistemologies of missing data: COVID dashboard builders and the
           production and maintenance of marginalized COVID data

    • Authors: Youngrim Kim, Megan Finn, Amelia Acker, Bidisha Chaudhuri, Stacey Wedlake, Ryan Ellis, Janaki Srinivasan
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      During COVID-19, countless dashboards served as the central media for people to learn critical information about the pandemic. Varied actors, including news organizations, government agencies, universities, and nongovernmental organizations, created and maintained these dashboards, through the onerous labor of collecting, categorizing, and circulating COVID data. This study uncovers different forms of labor and data practices—the work of “COVID data builders”—behind the construction of these dashboards based on in-depth interviews with volunteers and practitioners across the United States and India who participated in COVID dashboard projects. Specifically, we examine projects focused on marginalized and missing COVID data that aimed to show the pandemic's disproportionate and unjust impact. Through an investigation of data builders’ encounters and experiences with missing COVID data in mediating the pandemic, we ask: What data problems did COVID data builders encounter' How did they produce missing COVID data while questioning its representational capacity' And lastly, what “alternative epistemologies of data” beyond representation do their data practices suggest' Through our analysis, we surfaced three types of epistemological ambiguities COVID data builders encountered within their datasets: disappearing and ephemeral data, obscuring data, and disregarded data. By highlighting these different epistemological dimensions of missing data, we conclude that focusing on the performative and infrastructural aspects of what makes datasets “work” builds a new vocabulary for addressing missing data beyond representation. We argue that the politics of counting COVID cases is grounded in the material and affective labor of confronting, navigating, and negotiating with data's epistemological ambiguities.

  • Mandatory age verification for pornography access: Why it can't and won't
           ‘save the children’

    • Authors: Zahra Stardust, Abdul Obeid, Alan McKee, Daniel Angus
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Age verification is currently gaining traction among some western democracies as a means to restrict minors’ access to online pornography. In this article we consider the ramifications of applying age estimation software to this task. We analyse a public dataset of 10,139 facial images processed through a commonly used high-performance convolutional neural network approach and find significant inconsistencies in classification performance. Notably, the software demonstrates racial bias, with highest accuracy for the Caucasian category and lowest accuracy for the African category. It also displays age and gender bias, with lower accuracy for young males compared to young females. In addition to underwhelming technical performance, we argue that the concept of employing automated processes to restrict access to pornography is not only problematic but fundamentally misconceived. The systems being proposed to automate age verification create greater user data privacy risks and divert resourcing that could be spent on strategies that are proven to support healthy sexual development. Ultimately, mandatory age verification systems create barriers to post-pubescent young people seeking information about sex online. Our study concludes that the underlying problem with age verification, therefore, is not only technical but more profoundly political: even if the system can be made to work, it should not be.

  • Yellow Techno-Peril: The ‘Clash of Civilizations’ and anti-Chinese
           racial rhetoric in the US–China AI arms race

    • Authors: Kerry McInerney
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      The rhetoric of an ‘AI arms race’ between the United States and China has become increasingly prominent over the past 5 years, despite warnings that it is unnecessarily polarising and undermines safe and ethical artificial intelligence (AI) development. However, existing critiques of the AI arms race narrative engage only sparingly with the racialised dimensions of this discourse. In this article, I draw on the rich theoretical insights of Asian American and Asian diaspora studies to show how the AI arms race narrative is deeply racialised in two key ways. First, I show how the rhetoric of an AI arms race builds upon the myth of a ‘Clash of Civilizations’ between the West and the East. This civilisational rhetoric constitutes China and the United States as distinct and mutually opposed cultural entities, thus foreclosing the possibility of more peaceful and cooperative alternatives to the AI arms race. Second, I demonstrate how the US–China AI arms race specifically draws on previous racialised configurations of anti-Asian sentiment, such as techno-Orientalism and the Yellow Peril. I coin the term Yellow Techno-Peril to connote how older European and Americans fears of being overrun or controlled by China are reproduced in the AI arms race. I close by offering recommendations to key stakeholders such as policymakers, decisionmakers, journalists and media organisations as to how they can mitigate and avoid the racialised rhetoric of an AI arms race between the United States and China.

  • The curious case of blockchain in rural China: Unravelling power, profit,
           and surveillance

    • Authors: Alvin Hoi-Chun Hung
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Blockchain originated from the aspiration for decentralization, and in Western countries, its association with freedom from governmental and corporate dominance remains unwavering. However, in China–where blockchain has taken an intriguing foothold–the socio-technical imaginaries of blockchain diverge significantly. As China rises in blockchain development, critical literature examining its ventures is notably lacking. This article analyses state-led initiatives and corporate endeavours related to blockchain deployment in rural China. While blockchain's roots lie in libertarian ideals, within China, it serves as a ‘state techno-solutionist’ tool, empowering authoritarian capitalism for enhanced state control and corporate profit through data exploitation. Although the application of blockchain in agricultural tracing and finance is heralded as a blessing to elevate smallholder farmers from poverty and enhance agricultural practices, the reality contrasts sharply. Instead of empowering farmers, the technology exacerbates power imbalances, embedding them in a system marked by extensive data harvesting and surveillance. Such integration entangles these farmers subsisting on China's economic fringes within broader national and global capitalist financial frameworks, rendering them more susceptible to exploitation and manipulation. Moreover, blockchain in rural China epitomizes authoritarian capitalism, where capitalists aligning closely with state agendas. Blockchain's transparency, traceability, and tamper-resistant features, instead of diminishing government interference, are harnessed by capitalists to amplify the social credit system, strengthening the data dominance of platform companies and supporting state surveillance. Therefore, blockchain emerges as a threat to rural China's ways of life–all driven by the pursuit of corporate profit and the government's quest to reclaim national greatness.

  • Data as environment, environment as data: One Health in collaborative
           data-intensive science

    • Authors: Lucilla Barchetta, Roberta Raffaetà
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      This article analyses the operationalization of One Health in the context of data-intensive science in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Building on ethnographic field research and revisiting the lives of a knowledge infrastructure of interdisciplinary collaboration set up online in the early phase of the COVID-19 health emergency, the article develops the notion of “data as environment.” This environment is a contact structure that entangles knowledge systems, subjects, processing tools, and mediated bio-socialities in processes of data-intensive knowledge co-production. Claims for new collaborative approaches between the biomedical, environmental, and social sciences are increasingly marked by the emergence of digital knowledge-making infrastructure that leverages data, knowledge, and expertise from different disciplines and sectors to increase scientific productivity via data-sharing technologies. Yet, digital knowledge-making infrastructures appear self-evident when they are in place, while data are often conceived as inert and disembodied information units separated from social relations of research. The argument that data are an environment expands anthropological thinking on data and digital knowledge-making infrastructures by enlightening political-ethical questions that are at stake in the emerging technoscientific worlds of the Anthropocene.

  • The trustification of AI. Disclosing the bridging pillars that tie trust
           and AI together

    • Authors: Jascha Bareis
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Trustworthy artificial intelligence (TAI) is trending high on the political agenda. However, what is actually implied when talking about TAI, and why it is so difficult to achieve, remains insufficiently understood by both academic discourse and current AI policy frameworks. This paper offers an analytical scheme with four different dimensions that constitute TAI: a) A user perspective of AI as a quasi-other; b) AI's embedding in a network of actors from programmers to platform gatekeepers; c) The regulatory role of governance in bridging trust insecurities and deciding on AI value trade-offs; and d) The role of narratives and rhetoric in mediating AI and its conflictual governance processes. It is through the analytical scheme that overlooked aspects and missed regulatory demands around TAI are revealed and can be tackled. Conceptually, this work is situated in disciplinary transgression, dictated by the complexity of the phenomenon of TAI. The paper borrows from multiple inspirations such as phenomenology to reveal AI as a quasi-other we (dis-)trust; Science & Technology Studies (STS) to deconstruct AI's social and rhetorical embedding; as well as political science for pinpointing hegemonial conflicts within regulatory bargaining.

  • Generative AI and the politics of visibility

    • Authors: Tarleton Gillespie
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Proponents of generative AI tools claim they will supplement, even replace, the work of cultural production. This raises questions about the politics of visibility: what kinds of stories do these tools tend to generate, and what do they generally not' Do these tools match the kind of diversity of representation that marginalized populations and non-normative communities have fought to secure in publishing and broadcast media' I tested three widely available generative AI tools with prompts designed to reveal these normative assumptions; I prompted the tools multiple times with each, to track the diversity of the outputs to the same query. I demonstrate that, as currently designed and trained, generative AI tools tend to reproduce normative identities and narratives, rarely representing less common arrangements and perspectives. When they do generate variety, it is often narrow, maintaining deeper normative assumptions in what remains absent.

  • Is it about “them”' leveraging big data research to understand
           anti-immigrant discourse

    • Authors: Claire Stravato Emes
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      The paper explores the potential of big data analytics for researching anti-immigrant discourse. We emphasize contextualization as an essential element of research and follow a hybrid approach inspired by best practices of computational content analysis, combining human hermeneutic expertise with supervised machine learning to classify a corpus of comments in online news communities in Singapore over 6 months (N = 399,225). The paper highlights how big data analytics can provide a nuanced and critical apprehension of immigrant-related discourse in large social media datasets.

  • Reclaiming artificial intelligence accounts: A plea for a participatory
           turn in artificial intelligence inquiries

    • Authors: Pauline Gourlet, Donato Ricci, Maxime Crépel
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      How to participate in artificial intelligence otherwise' Put simply, when it comes to technological developments, participation is either understood as public debates with non-expert voices to anticipate risks and potential harms, or as a way to better design technical systems by involving diverse stakeholders in the design process. We advocate for a third path that considers participation as crucial to problematise what is at stake and to get a grip on the situated developments of artificial intelligence technologies.This study addresses how the production of accounts shape problems that arise with artificial intelligence technologies. Taking France as a field of study, we first inspected how media narratives account for the entities and issues of artificial intelligence, as reported by the national press over the last decade. From this inspection, we identified four genres and described their performative effects. We then conducted a participatory inquiry with 25 French artificial intelligence practitioners’ to ground artificial intelligence in situated experiences and trajectories. These experiential accounts enabled a plural problematisation of artificial intelligence, playing with the geometries of artificial intelligence and its constituencies, while diversifying and thickening its problems.To conclude, we discuss how participatory inquiries, through experiential and plural accounts offer a refreshing weaving of artificial intelligence problems into the fabric of its deployments. Our participatory approach seeks to re-politicise artificial intelligence from practitioners’ situated experiences, by making the ongoing relationships between past trajectories, current frictions and future developments tangible and contestable, opening avenues to contribute otherwise.

  • Platform sub-imperialism

    • Authors: Kenzo Soares Seto
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      This commentary explores Brazil's role in Latin American platform capitalism, integrating Ruy Mauro Marini's theoretical framework with contemporary studies of platform capitalism. It examines the connections between Latin American platforms, overexploitation, and data accumulation, leading to the concept of platform sub-imperialism: The emergence of certain Southern countries as platform sub-imperialist powers, acting as regional centers of data and capital accumulation through the expansion of their platforms into neighboring countries. This positioning constitutes an intermediate state between hegemonic nations and “digital colonies” in the international division of platform labor, data accumulation, and technological dependency.

  • Shapes and frictions of synthetic data

    • Authors: Dietmar Offenhuber
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Synthetic data are computer-generated data that mimic and substitute empirical observations without directly corresponding to real-world phenomena. Widely used in privacy protection, machine learning, and simulation, synthetic data is an emerging field only just beginning to be explored in the social sciences and critical data studies. However, recent developments, such as the use of synthetic data in the US Census and American Community Survey, make a reflection on the nature and implications of synthetic data urgent. While earlier work focused mostly on training data for machine-learning models, this paper presents a broad typology of synthetic data and discusses its frictions. The main argument presented is that the traditional representational model of data as symbolic references to corresponding physical or conceptual objects is insufficient for understanding and critically engaging with issues and implications of synthetic data. The paper discusses an alternative relational model, which defines data not through an object of reference but based on “who uses them, how and for which purposes”. The relational model is more productive for capturing the fact that synthetic data are defined through their purpose; their performance in a particular situation (such as training a machine learning model); and a context-dependent operationalization of evidence. The post-representational anything-goes epistemology of synthetic data can be productively challenged through a forensic approach that foregrounds the outliers, artifacts, and gaps in datasets as meaningful information.

  • Generating reality and silencing debate: Synthetic data as discursive
           device

    • Authors: Paula Helm, Benjamin Lipp, Roser Pujadas
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      In addition to tapping data from users’ behavioral surplus, by drawing on generative adversarial networks, data for artificial intelligence is now increasingly being generated through artificial intelligence. With this new method of producing data synthetically, the data economy is not only shifting from “data collection” to “data generation.” Synthetic data is also being employed to address some of the most pressing ethical concerns around artificial intelligence. It thereby comes with the sociotechnical imaginary that social problems can be cut out of artificial intelligence, separating training data from real persons. In response to this technical solutionism, this commentary aims to initiate a critical debate about synthetic data that goes beyond misuse scenarios such as the use of generative adversarial networks to create deep fakes or dark patterns. Instead, on a more general level, we seek to complicate the idea of “solving,” i.e., “closing” and thus “silencing” the ethico-political debates for which synthetic data is supposed to be a solution by showing how synthetic data itself is political. Drawing on the complex connections between recent uses of synthetic data and public debates about artificial intelligence, we therefore propose to consider and analyze synthetic data not only as a technical device but as a discursive one as well. To this end, we shed light on their relationship to three pillars that we see associated with them (a) algorithmic bias, (b) privacy, (c) platform economy.

  • Deeply embedded wages: Navigating digital payments in data work

    • Authors: Julian Posada
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Many workers worldwide rely on digital platforms for their income. In Venezuela, a nation grappling with extreme inflation and where most of the workforce is self-employed, data production platforms for machine learning have emerged as a viable opportunity for many to earn an income in US dollars. Data workers are deeply interconnected within a vast network of entities that act as intermediaries for wage payments in digital currencies. Past research on embeddedness has noted that being intertwined in multi-tiered socioeconomic networks of companies and individuals can offer significant rewards to social participants, while also connoting a particular set of limitations. This paper provides qualitative evidence regarding how this “deep embeddedness” impacts data workers in Venezuela. Given the backdrop of a national crisis and rampant hyperinflation, the perks of receiving wages through financial platforms include accessing more stable currencies and investment outside the national financial system. However, relying on numerous intermediaries often diminishes income due to transaction fees. Moreover, this introduces heightened financial risks, particularly due to the unpredictable nature of cryptocurrencies as an investment. This paper evaluates the effects of the platformization of wages and its effect on working conditions. The over-reliance on external financial platforms erodes worker autonomy through power dynamics that lean in favor of the platforms that set the transaction rules and prices. These findings present a multifaceted perspective on deep embeddedness in platform labor, highlighting how the rewards of financial intermediation often come at a substantial cost for the workers in precarious situations.

  • Foundation models are platform models: Prompting and the political economy
           of AI

    • Authors: Sarah Burkhardt, Bernhard Rieder
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      A recent innovation in the field of machine learning has been the creation of very large pre-trained models, also referred to as ‘foundation models’, that draw on much larger and broader sets of data than typical deep learning systems and can be applied to a wide variety of tasks. Underpinning text-based systems such as OpenAI's ChatGPT and image generators such as Midjourney, these models have received extraordinary amounts of public attention, in part due to their reliance on prompting as the main technique to direct and apply them. This paper thus uses prompting as an entry point into the critical study of foundation models and their implications. The paper proceeds as follows: In the first section, we introduce foundation models in more detail, outline some of the main critiques, and present our general approach. We then discuss prompting as an algorithmic technique, show how it makes foundation models programmable, and explain how it enables different audiences to use these models as (computational) platforms. In the third section, we link the material properties of the technologies under scrutiny to questions of political economy, discussing, in turn, deep user interactions, reordered cost structures, and centralization and lock-in. We conclude by arguing that foundation models and prompting further strengthen Big Tech's dominance over the field of computing and, through their broad applicability, many other economic sectors, challenging our capacities for critical appraisal and regulatory response.

  • Quantifying the self with others

    • Authors: Shelbey R. Call, Jared T. Jensen, Joshua B. Barbour
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Self-trackers collect personal data for many reasons, including generating insight about their bodies, habits, productivity, and wellbeing. Self-tracking may expose intimate facets of daily life, raising important questions about surveillance, privacy, and data ownership. In this study, we investigated an online community of self-trackers and their weekly “show-and-tell” presentations through observations of their meetings and interviews with members. Making sense of their personal data in community with others involved practical and philosophical difficulties that participants navigated by integrating competing priorities for their interactions in specific communication moves and by transcending interactional difficulties through a shared focus on an open science data imaginary. The findings contribute to the study of the datafication of health by revealing how their interactions helped them generate meaning, how they navigated the tensions inherent to making sense of personal data in community with others, and how they deliberated about the broader social issues implicated in their practice.

  • Repairing the harm: Toward an algorithmic reparations approach to hate
           speech content moderation

    • Authors: Chelsea Peterson-Salahuddin
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Content moderation algorithms influence how users understand and engage with social media platforms. However, when identifying hate speech, these automated systems often contain biases that can silence or further harm marginalized users. Recently, scholars have offered both restorative and transformative justice frameworks as alternative approaches to platform governance to mitigate harms caused to marginalized users. As a complement to these recent calls, in this essay, I take up the concept of reparation as one substantive approach social media platforms can use alongside and within these justice frameworks to take actionable steps toward addressing, undoing and proactively preventing the harm caused by algorithmic content moderation. Specifically, I draw on established legal and legislative reparations frameworks to suggest how social media platforms can reconceptualize algorithmic content moderation in ways that decrease harm to marginalized users when identifying hate speech. I argue that the concept of reparations can reorient how researchers and corporate social media platforms approach content moderation, away from capitalist impulses and efficiency and toward a framework that prioritizes creating an environment where individuals from marginalized communities feel safe, protected and empowered.

  • Privacy cynicism and diminishing utility of state surveillance: A natural
           experiment of mandatory location disclosure on China's Weibo

    • Authors: Yuner Zhu
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      This article examines the public response to mandatory location disclosure (MLD), a new surveillance technology implemented on China's Sina Weibo. Initially introduced to geo-tag posts related to the Ukraine War, the MLD eventually expanded to encompass all posts and comments on the platform. Drawing on a large-scale dataset comprising over 0.6 million posts and 24 million comments, this study uncovers political asymmetry observed during the initial implementation of MLD. Users with different political orientations were subjected to different levels of geo-tagging. Pro-Ukraine users were most frequently geo-tagged, followed by Pro-Russia and liberal-leaning users, while conservative-leaning users are least likely to be tagged. This selective surveillance approach, however, backfired among Pro-Ukraine and Pro-Russia users, pushing them to publish more war-related content, while its impact on liberal- and conservative-leaning users appeared to be minimal. When selective surveillance was replaced by universal surveillance, the backfire effects ceased to exist and people's interest in war-related topics declined. Furthermore, privacy cynicism prevails among commenters across opinion groups. Neither the introduction nor the expansion of MLD deterred audiences from engaging with the geo-tagged posts. These findings suggest that prolonged surveillance makes people less sensitive to privacy threats and more experienced in neutralizing surveillance's influence on themselves. Privacy cynicism, though widely considered toxic to democracy, can function as a source of resilience that shields people from the fear of coercion and undercuts the marginal utility of state surveillance in an authoritarian context.

  • The EU Settlement Scheme: Footprints in quicksand

    • Authors: Cristina Juverdeanu
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      Part of an accelerated trend to integrate algorithms in immigration decision-making, the UK's EU Settlement Scheme relies on automated data checks as an essential and mandatory step in the application for UK residence. In this article, I engage with the literature on datafication and algorithmic accuracy to showcase algorithmic inaccuracy within borders in regard to the allocation of residence statuses and rights. I argue that, while the EUSS uses big data to create a data double of the ‘desirable’ migrant, even applicants within this category experience mismatches. Some EU+ Citizens on linear residence and career trajectories were initially offered pre-settled status and had difficulty proving their entitlement to the full status, while others, who did not qualify for settled status, obtained it nevertheless. The analysis is based on in-depth interviews with high skilled applicants, and experts on the EUSS, exposing that footprints are not evidence per se. Instead, the outcomes are decided by an opaque algorithm that is not retained and disappears as easily as footprints in quicksand.

  • Agreements ‘in the wild’: Standards and alignment in machine learning
           benchmark dataset construction

    • Authors: Isak Engdahl
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      This article presents an ethnographic case study of a corporate-academic group constructing a benchmark dataset of daily activities for a variety of machine learning and computer vision tasks. Using a socio-technical perspective, the article conceptualizes the dataset as a knowledge object that is stabilized by both practical standards (for daily activities, datafication, annotation and benchmarks) and alignment work – that is, efforts including forging agreements to make these standards effective in practice. By attending to alignment work, the article highlights the informal, communicative and supportive efforts that underlie the success of standards and the smoothing of tensions between actors and factors. Emphasizing these efforts constitutes a contribution in several ways. This article's ethnographic mode of analysis challenges and supplements quantitative metrics on datasets. It advances the field of dataset analysis by offering a detailed empirical examination of the development of a new benchmark dataset as a collective accomplishment. By showing the importance of alignment efforts and their close ties to standards and their limitations, it adds to our understanding of how machine learning datasets are built. And, most importantly, it calls into question a key characterization of the dataset: that it captures unscripted activities occurring naturally ‘in the wild’, as alignment work bleeds into moments of data capture.

  • Imaginaries of democratization and the value of open environmental data:
           Analysis of Microsoft's planetary computer

    • Authors: Przemyslaw Matt Lukacz
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      The proliferation of environmentally oriented programs within the tech industry, and the industry's coinciding efforts toward data and technology democratization, generate concerns about the status of environmental data within digital economy. While the accumulation of digital personal data has been a cornerstone of domination of the data analytics industry, many believe environmental data to be a source of “untapped potential.” The potential of environmental data, the argument goes, would benefit equally the digital economy, environmental sciences, and academic data and artificial intelligence experts. This article analyzes the proliferation of the rhetoric about open environmental data by focusing on Microsoft's Planetary Computer cloud computing program and computer vision experts who curate and use biodiversity data stored on Microsoft's servers. Through an analytical framework of sociotechnical imaginaries, the article draws connections between visions of future for environmental knowledge production and governance promoted by Microsoft and the work of computer vision experts intending to benefit from the potential of environmental data as machine learning training sets while at the same time helping environmental sciences. Although environmental data on the Planetary Computer is democratized, it nonetheless becomes a valued asset to data economy, but often with unintended consequences, such as enabling citizen science biodiversity data to be used by state surveillance apparatus. The article challenges the view that data's democratization is unproblematically serving environmental sciences by examining the consequences of imaginaries of democratization emerging from the data industry leaders and processes of nonmonetary valuation of environmental data by experts who curate these datasets.

  • Role-based privacy cynicism and local privacy activism: How data stewards
           navigate privacy in higher education

    • Authors: Mihaela Popescu, Lemi Baruh, Samuel Sudhakar
      Abstract: Big Data & Society, Volume 11, Issue 2, April-June 2024.
      This study examines the impact of role-based constraints on privacy cynicism within higher education, a workplace increasingly subjected to surveillance. Using a thematic analysis of 15 in-depth interviews conducted between 2017 and 2023 with data stewards in the California State University System, the research explores the reasons behind data stewards’ privacy cynicism, despite their knowledge of privacy and their own ability to protect it. We investigate how academic data custodians navigate four role-based tensions: the conflict between the institutional and personal definitions of privacy; the mutual reinforcement between their privacy-cynical attitudes and their perceptions of student privacy attitudes; the influence of role constraints on data stewards’ privacy-protective behaviors; and the contrast between the negatively valued societal surveillance and the positively valued university surveillance. The findings underscore the significance of considering organizational privacy cultures and role-based expectations in studying privacy cynicism. The study contributes to the theoretical understanding of privacy cynicism and offers practical implications for organizations, emphasizing the importance of aligning organizational definitions of privacy with employees’ understanding. Future research should further explore the mutual reinforcement of privacy cynicism in the relationship between data providers and data consumers (which we call the “spiral of resignation”) and consider the impact of role-based constraints in other organizational contexts.
