An imperfect thread on some intersections of #BehavioralScience + #ComplexSystems

@DavidPerrott_ @g_arteagoitia
Some ppl recognize behavioral science is in its adolescents in a lot ways. While behavioral scientists have identified design that work really well (you know:
opt-out organ donation @ProfEricJohnson & @dggoldst
Save More for Tomorrow @R_Thaler & @shlomobenartzi)
These are wonderful & we should keep doing these!

But these are only a beginning manifestation of behavioral design & never meant to encompass all of behavioral science

The problem some see is that #nudges are designed in STABLE contexts & with specific demographics

Nearly 350,000 #DeadRegistrants remain on voter rolls across 41 states, according to an audit conducted by the @PILFoundation.

The number is a major improvement over the last time an assessment of similar scope was performed in 2012, when a Pew Research report turned up 2 million deceased voters on the rolls.

The New York Times did this, back in 2016. Though, with Trump supporters and Duck Dynasty (vis-a-vis shows like Modern Family & Empire). nytimes.com/interactive/20…
It's the premise of #BigData. To riff off Aristotle's "give me a child until he is 7, and I will show you the man", in modern times, it's: "Give me your data, and I will show you who I believe you are, and push you in the direction of who I want you to be."
As an example, if you're getting election-related calls, texts, Facebook ads, etc., you're getting them because you're on a list. Data decided which list(s) you should be on.

Please help us welcome our next curator Darryl Takudzwa Griffiths. @BlaqNinja completed his Bachelors Degree in Computer Engineering at DUT, graduated in 2011. Due to struggling to find suitable employment he went on to study multiple certificates from bodies such as Microsoft.
He has certificates in N+ (Computer Networking), A+ (Computer Technician & Technical Support), Certified Ethical Hacking V7 (CEH v7), Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP). Sadly even with these, he could not secure his desired post so in 2016 he moved to USA.
Darryl was able to secure a job in a corporation that owns casinos as a system analyst & security architect. Within the same year he embarked on a Masters degree in Robotics & Artificial Intelligence Engineering. In 2017 he resigned from his post and started his own company...

I have spent the summer reading about how math & Big Data shape our understanding of the world. To my surprise, it has affirmed the importance of the humanities. Behind the shiny facade of #BigData lies a series of social judgments made by human beings.

A thread w/ citations.
The field of statistics is full of subjective judgments, such as p < .05 being the threshold for significance, or the selection of variables (@JSEllenberg). These are, as @mathbabedotorg puts it, “opinions embedded in models.” But we lose site of this in popular discourse. 2/9
The judgments made my mathematicians and data scientists are no more capital-T True than those made by activists, artists, journalists, etc. The difference is that mathematical judgments can be embedded in code — distilled to 1s and 0s — and scaled to infinity. @rushkoff 3/9

La producción de «datos» en el neocapitalismo persigue crear su propia «materia prima», sobre la que aplicar la «fuerza productiva» de los algoritmos, en un contexto en que las «relaciones de producción» prescinden del polo más conflictivo: el trabajador.
La expulsión de la «mano de obra» del proceso y su sustitución por entidades no reificadas, como la máquina, el robot o la propia factoría autopoiética, deja al capitalismo sin opositor, pero también crea las condiciones de su colapso.
La abstracción numérica es la nueva materialidad. Sobre la materialidad del «dato», entendido ontológicamente como la representación digital de una medición, se construye el capitalismo de datos por el simple hecho de agregar dos factores: optimización y velocidad.

Acabo de leer el Plan #EspanaDigital2025. Me parece tan ingenuo y etéreo para abordar el momento actual que creo que lo único que garantiza es que en 5 años tendremos los mismos problemas (o mayores) con la #tecnología para ser competitivos. Abro hilo. mineco.gob.es/portal/site/mi…
El plan se centra en varias lineas estratégicas que serían aplicables hoy pero también en 2000, 2010 o 2015. Insiste en mantras "atemporales" asociados ingenuamente a la digitalización y creación de riqueza digital pero que ignoran el contexto. Están fuera del timing real.
Muchas de ellas se centran en la infraestructura (#5G, derecho a la cobertura con 100Mbps, etc). Todo ello es muy positivo, pero no deja ser un MEDIO, no un FIN. A no ser que seas una #Telco. Es necesario y positivo, pero no nos hace más competitivos, solo mejores consumidores.

@AWeissmann_ Since we're talking about Stone, and Facebook just shut down one of his social-media networks over there, perhaps it's time to discuss what the @FBI has known about how vulnerable they are since 1/2/20.

Mucho se habla sobre #China como "Faro" de todo ecosistema #Fintech, pero poco sobre su #Regulación el rol del Gobierno chino.

Esta tendencia a omitir al Regulador en el desarrollo del ecosistema #fintech en #China está escudada en que "son un Estado Socialista"

Abro hilo Image
1/ Vengo leyendo mucho sobre el desarrollo de este ecosistema y, principalmente, cómo el Estado se paró frente a gigantes como #Tencent, #Alibaba o #Baidu.

¿Acaso podemos ignorar que hoy #China es el ÚNICO país en todo el mundo con empresas que compiten con #Facebook o #Google?
2/ Sin duda esto tuvo un costo en términos de libertades y demás pero, siendo pragmáticos: lograron ser el ÚNICO país que no transfiere diariamente valor a mansalva a los gigantes #tech de occidente.

(es más, podríamos decir que cada vez más la ecuación es a la inversa)

¿Cómo defines “big data”? 🧐 Comúnmente se entiende por big data a una gran cantidad de datos, algo así como miles de Gigabytes al menos!

#bigdata
Pero el tamaño de los datos, que formalmente se le llama “volumen”, no es el único factor a tomar en cuenta cuando hablamos de big data 😱.
Un referente para big data es conocido como las “Vs del big data”. Estas “Vs” son Volumen, Velocidad, Variedad, y Veracidad.

Aquí una infografía muy bonita de IBM: Image

¿Existe alguna categorización de las #teorías e investigación del área de Sistemas de Información? 🧐 ¡La respuesta es sí! En este hilo te cuento al respecto 👇
A mí me encantan las teorías e investigación del área de Sistemas de Información 😍, por mi formación y participación, pero además porque hablan de situaciones a las que estamos expuestos muy probablemente día a día en esta era de la información y la tecnología 🤗.
Les comparto entonces un listado de los temas generales en los que se categorizan las teorías de esta área:

Had the pleasure of discussing with leading #tech activists on the use of #BigData in #elections in #Africa & the implications for #democracy. With elections in #Guinea #CôtedIvoire #Niger #Burkina #Ghana, the issue is high on the agenda! Thx @Info_Activism! Key resources below.
Think #BigData is not being harnessed for political influence in #WestAfrica? Read @simonallison's article on the use of data in the 2019 presidential #election in #Senegal and think again!

#IRBScience: Did you know that 7% of #cancer cell lines are misclassified and actually correspond to a different type of cancer?

Check out the latest work by the @GenomeDataLab, published in @ScienceAdvances.

Of 614 cell lines, approx. 60% greatly conserve the characteristics of the tumour of origin, another 20% maintain some resemblance. The remaining 18% differ considerably from the tumour that they supposedly represent. #IRBScience
(2/4)
“Identifying cell lines that are very different from the tumour of origin is crucial because they can lead to false positive or false negative results in experiments,” says @FranSupek, head of the @GenomeDataLab at @IRBBarcelona
