From Digital Traces to Algorithmic Projections describes individual digital fingerprints in interaction with the different algorithms they encounter throughout life. Centered on the human user, this formalism makes it possible to distinguish the voluntary projections of an individual and their systemic projections (suffered, metadata), both open (public) and closed. As the global algorithmic projection of an individual is now the focus of attention (Big Data, neuromarketing, targeted advertising, sentiment analysis, cybermonitoring, etc.) and is used to define new concepts, this resource discusses the ubiquity of place and the algorithmic consent of a user.

Key Features

  • Provides an unprecedented approach to our voluntary or experienced digital interactions
  • Explores all the digital traces created daily by the connected user and by the inhabitant of the intelligent city


Engineers, technicians, teachers, researchers, science students, scientists. Prospective audience: sociologists, philosophers, anthropologists, military professionals
