February 2020

At the February meeting, we discussed Morozov’s (2019) The Calculation Debate in the age of Big Data. Morozov largely takes on Mayer-Schönberger’s (2013) Big Data and (2018) Reinventing Capitalism in the Age of Big Data, which claim that Big Data will destroy capitalism as we know it. Morozov outlines how Mayer-Schönberger mistakenly claims capitalism is merely a series of actions, rather than a system and goes on to explain how Big Data fits neatly into the system of Capital we find in the West today. Abridged notes for these chapters can be found here.
