dc.description.abstractRobots and Recognition: Subject/Technology Relationships in the Algorithmic Age explores dyadic interactions between subject/digital technology pairings. With the “subject” of the dyad being either the individual human or human populations; I’ll be exploring how technologies such as the facial recognition camera, algorithmic economic processor, and Facebook status generator all necessitate certain relationships rooted in recognition of the subject by the technology, and vice-versa. Rooting my analysis in historical and contemporary theories in posthuman affect, technocapitalism, military and pedestrian technologies, I question how the dyad can or cannot exist within certain thresholds of recognition, as well as how the dyad can produce a misrecognition. In my thesis, I explore the multiple misrecognitions possible within the aforementioned technologies, and the throttling misrecognition causes to such technologies, as well as the humans interacting with them.en_US
