Algorithmic Mediation and Smartness

The seminar Algorithmic Mediation and Smartness by Bernard Geoghegan, Stéphane Grumbach, Orit Halpern, Olivier Hamant, and Robert Mitchell with Mark Hansen and Erich Hörl is part of the ANTHROPOCENE CURRICULUM | CAMPUS: THE TECHNOSPHERE ISSUE.

The seminar explores the Anthropocene—and the possibility it will lead to the “technoscene,” in which technology itself becomes a geological force, progressively independent of the (democratic) decisions of humans—through two related concepts: “intermediation” and “smartness.”
