Project: Algolit

Release & Publish often

The Algolit exhibition Data Workers in Mundaneum in Mons has come to an end. Everything was up and running. And it was great. In order to be able to have afterlives, forks and other remixing deviations, we will dedicate one session to documenting the exhibition: gathering code, adding comments and licenses, publishing pictures, reorganising the wiki, making sure the datasets of Mundaneum and the podcast of the exhibition are accessible and can travel on the web, etc.

In the afternoon we welcome Xiaochang Li for a conversation. Xiaochang Li is researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin. She will present us our ideas on the history of automatic speech recognition. This gives a glimpse into how making language into data made data into an imperative, and thus shaped the conceptual and technical groundwork for what is now one of our most wide-reaching modes of computational knowledge.

Algolit is a workgroup around FLOSS literature and code, they organise regular meetings following the Oulipo principle. There is no need for programming knowledge, but if you have it, you’re of course very welcome as well. The process will be documented during the day.
