Dr. Jakob Svensson, Associate Professor in Media and Communication at Malmö University, guests to share his research on the logics that drive how digital media operate. We discuss how algorithms and datafication are shaped by developers, and the types of biases that can occur as a result. We also talk about the political implications of artificial intelligence.
The two studies referenced in the episode are:
Study 1 (2015): The Emergence of Network Media Logic in Political Communication: A Theoretical Approach
Study 2 (2018): The End of Media Logics? On Algorithms and Agency
