Algorithms, Scale, Speed and the Labor of Logistics

Making the "Future of Work" Work

The second of two panel discussions, open to the public, as part of the National Science Foundation-funded two-day workshop on Making the "Future of Work" Work.

Digital labor regimes have infiltrated various processes from global logistics and supply chains to mass production and mechanic work. Scale, speed, and acceleration are key to these processes of increasing algorithmic control (simultaneously critiqued and celebrated). What are the cracks, frictions, and gaps in this seemingly all-subsuming finance capitalism? How might we have to rearticulate what counts as solidarity and collective organizing to counter distributed, isolating, and large-scale structures of control? How can we intervene in the persistent techno-optimism that lives on in contemporary engineering and design?
