AlgorithmicKitchen ”Data Slimmer Humus hot dog”
October 22, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
With the workshop #AlgorithmicKitchen we opened a space of discussion over BigData, Algorithms and recipes. During this sessions you will learn how algorithms munch on big data and how these algorithms are made. We will let it crunch its logic on a large database of fine cuisine. Together we will cook the tastiest outcomes, so that you can have your cake of BigData and eat it too.
After a long summer brake we come back to delve into meditations about how data about us is constantly gathered, where it is stored and what technologies are used for these purposes. Since we’ll be close to Day of the Dead, in this session of the #AlgorithmicKitchen we will get all the skeletons out of the closet: ghouls from the DATACTIVE research group at the University of Amsterdam will share the gruesomest horror stories of the current algorithmic mayhem. Afterwards, we’ll get our hands dirty by playing with some tools to find out how are we tracked and classified. We expect you all next Sunday, 22nd October under the codename ”Data Slimmer Humus hot dog”
The aim of the #AlgorithmicKitchen is to cook together how to understand different families of algorithms with the use of different recipes on each session, in a familiar and secure environment where everyone is welcome to come, share, learn and cook recipes over BigData.
This time, since its on Sunday, the session will be finishing earlier and no dinner will be served, but a salad or something light. We will start at 13pm till 17pm.
