Archaeology and historiography of public algorithms

Horizon 2030

In the early 2030s, the professions of history have never been so topical. Historians work with public administrations in doing public algorithms archaeology. Those inquiries are far more than just a dive into code strata.

The stake is to understand what conditioned the implementation of those digital systems several decades ago to better inform the making of tomorrow’s algorithms.

Let’s debate about this future!

This scenario deserves to be discussed, disputed or even enriched.
We propose three participatory activities and tools to collectively debate about this scenario.
