Algorithmic populism and algorithmic activism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

Digitalization gave birth to a new form of populism: algorithmic populism. If we want to understand contemporary populism, we should understand it in its social, political, economic and technological context. Algorithmic populism cannot be understood without taking the uptake and algorithmic activism in particular into account.
