Efficiency and Madness. Using Data and Technology to Solve Social, Environmental and Political Problems

, and . Heinrich Böll Stiftung, Berlin, (2017)

Abstract

Technologies help us do more with less, they defy boundaries of space, time and self. We experience them as both magic and loss. This essay begins by adopting broader conceptual analysis from the work of academics and theorists, applied from the position of practitioners working internationally on technology deployment for social change. It then looks at how data-driven technologies are currently deployed to solve problems. Lastly, it makes a case for why we cannot leave the challenges posed by data-driven technologies to technologists.
