João Carlos Magalhães, Dr.

João Carlos Magalhães ist Senior Researcher am Alexander von Humboldt Institut für Internet und Gesellschaft und arbeitet in der Forschungsgruppe “Evolving Digital Society”. Zuvor forschte und lehrte João Magalhães an der London School of Economics and Political Science, wo er im Bereich Neue Medien promovierte.

Ein Großteil seiner Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit den politischen und moralischen Auswirkungen von algorithmischen Medien und Technologien. Am HIIG leitet er ein von der EU gefördertem Projekt, das die Governance-Strukturen von Social-Media-Plattformen abbildet, mit einem Fokus auf Urheberrechtspolitik und automatisierte Filter. Im Jahr 2020 erhielt er ein Stipendium der Wikimedia Foundation, um an der Erstellung einer offenen Datenbank mit den Richtlinien der Plattformen mitzuwirken. In seiner Dissertation, die durch ein LSE-Doktorandenstipendium finanziert wurde, argumentierte er, dass Facebooks KI-gesteuerter öffentlicher Raum eine Form von Bottom-up-Autoritarismus ermöglicht, in dem Bürger nur gehört werden können, indem sie sich selbst und andere zum Schweigen bringen – was ein Überdenken dessen erfordern könnte, was ein “ethischer Algorithmus” sein sollte. Im Jahr 2021 schloss er ein Projekt ab, in dem er untersuchte, wie die “AI for social good”-Initiativen von Big Tech den Datenkolonialismus erweitern.

Er untersuchte auch die Verwendung von Microtargeting durch politische Kampagnen, die Aneignung des Begriffs “Algorithmus” durch gewöhnliche Menschen, die Verbindungen zwischen Medien, Anerkennung und Ethik und wie die britische Presse Jeremy Corbyn (falsch) dargestellt hat. Bevor er Akademiker wurde, arbeitete João als Journalist in Brasilien, wo er einige der wichtigsten journalistischen Preise in Lateinamerika gewann.
