Who Controls the Public Sphere in an Era of Algorithms: Case Studies

Laura Reed, Robyn Caplan

D&S Research Analyst Laura Reed and D&S Researcher Robyn Caplan put together a set of case studies to complement the contemporary issues primer, Mediation, Automation, and Power, for the Algorithms and Publics project. These case studies explore situations in which algorithmic media is shaping the public sphere across a variety of dimensions, including the changing role of the journalism industry, the use of algorithms for censorship or international compliance, how algorithms are functioning within foreign policy aims, digital gerrymandering, the spread of misinformation, and more.
