Education of Artificial Desire

As part of the 4S, Society for Social Studies of Science 2013, I will be in San Diego presenting my recent work on the cultural history of Affective Computing. My presentation titled, Education of Artificial Desire: Natural Language Algorithms and Crowdsourcing Sentiment Analysis, is based on my research on the use of crowdsourcing as a new form of division of cognitive labor and its use in sentiment analysis problems. The question that arises from this cluster of technologies is that how do we address formations of subjectivities in relation to algorithmic representation of affect that feeds on collective sentiment of networked crowds.
