Emanuel Moss

PhD candidate in Cultural Anthropology at The CUNY Graduate Center

I am working on an ethnography of data science, with a particular focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence. I am particularly interested in the cultural, ethical, economic, and ideological underpinnings of data science as a mode of knowledge production. I am also a research analyst at Data & Society studying data research ethics.
