Creativity and critique: Gap analysis of support for critical research on Big Data

Abstract:
There is growing concern about the degree to which digital media and device networks can be used as tools of social control. This concern is expressed in at least two ways. First, social and computer scientists are finding ways to catalog and demonstrate how algorithmic control can be exercised and abused. Second, civic actors are tracking how big data and algorithms can be used to make better policy recommendations, while also tracking how political elites use the tools.
