    Reblogged this on Governing Emergencies and commented:
    There are some important links between work on emergencies and how algorithms shape, govern and control everyday practices and processes, from traffic management to financial trading. For me, there are interesting questions around the normative and procedural understandings of algorithms, specifically in settings that do the work of governing urban circulations and dealing with disruptive events. Definitely looking forward to this conference.
