The Metaphysics of Data Capital Weatherby, Leif


This talk traces the origins of data capital to the work of cybernetics founder Warren McCulloch and economist Friedrich Hayek, who borrowed heavily from German Idealism in providing the basis for the new economy. When data is capital, dialectics becomes the form of capitalism - and issues a challenge to rethink the work of critique.
