AI, Big Data, Social Media, and People on the Move
About the Conference
The conference focuses on topics that arise from artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data deployed on and used by ‘people on the move’. We understand the term ‘people on the move’ in a broad sense: individuals and groups who – by volition or necessity – are changing their lives and/or their structural position in societies. This encompasses the role of automated systems or AI in different forms of geographical and social change, including migration and labour mobility, algorithmic uses of ̒ location’, as well as discourses of and about people on the move.
