Sebastian Gießler


Sebastian Gießler studied Cultural Anthropology, Sociology and Philosophy of Science with a focus on Philosophy of Social Sciences as well as Science and Technology Studies. He is particularly interested in the use of algorithms and ‘big data’ for the analysis and evaluation of social interconnections. Since the public debate often links far-reaching solutions for social problems with the term ‘digitisation’, Sebastian wants to investigate whether and how these promised solutions work and how they influence everyday life. At AlgorithmWatch, he is involved in the projects Atlas of Automationand Automated Human Resources Management and Labour Rights.
