data base

Larger and larger programs are being written which require a structured data base to operate with any efficiency. Many of these could well benefit by replacing tedious searches with a fast, efficient, “content addressable” access of the data store.


content, context, and structure

In general, all information objects, regardless of the physical or intellectual form they take, have three features—content, context, and structure—all of which can and should be reflected through metadata. Gilliland 2008:2


The Sum

Perhaps a more useful, “big picture” way of thinking about metadata is as the sum total of what one can say about any information object at any level of aggregation. Gilliland 2008 #data


Meta-Data

Until the mid-1990s … metadata referred to … data necessary for the identification, representation, interoperability, technical management, performance, and use of data contained in an information system. Gilliland 2008


Agency

#machinelearning… Mundane technical practices, sometimes at a quite low level (for instance, vectorisation) and other times at a high level of formalization (for instance, in discussing mathematical functions) are elements… of agency McKenzie 2017:41

Commodities cont.

(2) And with that, we have sorted out the matter of the frequently stated argument that with the “transition from an industrial to a service economy” or in the left-wing variant of Hardt and Negri the transition from “material” to … Mehr…


Social Form

(1) The difference between services and physical objects consists of a distinction of the material content; the question as to whether they are commodities pertains to their socialform, and that depends upon whether objects and services are exchanged…


Evident

(2) What Hardt and Negri call “immaterial labour” overwhelmingly consists of the labour that is deployed in the fourth sector. This is evident in Michael Hardt (2010, 134–135). Rigi 2015:194


Post-Operaism

As Caffentzis (2013) argues, an ontological distinction between material and immaterial labour is problematic because all labour processes require the involvement of the human body and the expenditure of energy. Rigi 2015:193
