Exploring digital spheres – a podcast by HIIG

Listen to our brand-new podcast on the digital society!

Come with us on a journey into the realms of the digital: In the podcast Exploring digital spheres you will get to know HIIG researchers from diverse disciplines. We ask them, how our digital society works and what the future might look like. Every other episode, the researchers will enter into a dialogue with other digital mavericks!

All about our digital society

This is Exploring Digital Spheres, a brand new podcast produced by the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society. We are very excited to announce this podcast all about our digital society.

We find ourselves surrounded by buzzwords like Big Data, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence and it becomes ever more difficult to understand the world that we are currently building. Together with Wouter Bernhardt we will be diving deep into a world of coding, rating, nudging and filtering. We will be asking questions on how our digital society works and what the future might look like.

Among our first guests is Martin Riedl, fellow at HIIG researching the consequences of working as a content moderator. He ask: What does it mean if we create a very clean version of the internet? And what are the effects? In another episode, HIIG director Björn Scheuermann talks about his personal engagement as a computer scientists in explaining what algorithms are and what computer scientists really do. In our first episode, Rike Maier introduces us to remixes on plattforms like Youtube and what upload filter do to the internet as we know it.

All this and more, every second week on itunes, spotify and hiig.de.
