Algorithms Morozov I 160
Algorithms/Christopher Steiner/Morozov: "Algorithms can bring us new artists, but because they build their judgment on what was popular in the past, we will probably end up with the same kind of forgettable Pop we already have. It is clear evidence of the technology that all these years mediocre music is included in the analysis." (1) Morozov: Of course, algorithms can be configured differently - and some independent labels may choose to release music that will remain unpopular - but it is hard to expect major labels to miss the opportunity to earn more and safer money by using algorithms.
((s)VsMorozov: It is not about the fact that unpopular music or art is perhaps more interesting, but about new forms that are not found or even invented when algorithms are programmed to follow pre-drawn paths. However, in most algorithms there is a random element. This random element is also an important tool to prevent manipulation. Calculable behavior is more manipulable than unpredictable.)
I 163
After online media record the behavior of their users, they use algorithms to automatically generate new and customized content. (2)

Behavior Morozov Morozov I 214
Behavior/Social Networks/Technology/Digitalization/Politics/Economy/Kelly/Morozov: Kelly's thesis: Only by listening to the history of technology (...) we can hope to solve our personal puzzles. (1) Kelly: we can modify our legal and economic expectations by adapting them to the (...) technological development lines. (2)
I 215
MorozovVsKelly: Why should we change our economic and political assumptions if we could change those lines of development instead? Why change our notions of privacy if we could change Facebook and Google instead? Why should we accept predictive policing measures instead of restricting them to areas where they do not undermine contradiction and reason? And to what extent should we change our expectations?
KellyVsMorozov: instead, he thinks you should try every idea immediately. And continue as long as this idea exists. (3)
I 216
Behavior/KellyVsAmish/Kelly/Morozov: Kelly accuses the Amish of denying opportunities not only to their own people, but to all people. (4) MorozovVsKelly: It never dawned on Kelly that political communities may be entitled to determine their own lives, and that restrictions as far as they have been democratically created - as is not always the case with the Amish - could also be good for humanity. Kelly's all about the means.
