[The World in the CLOUD]]

The Internet is part of almost everyone’s life. Its rise in popularity over the last decade has revolutionized the way we communicate and share information, both individually and socially. Changes in the way we give and receive affection, the perception of our own bodies, learning systems, are just some of the effects of man’s increasing digital immersion.

EXHIBITION INDEX

“The Cloud World” is an exhibition that seeks to touch on these and many other topics divided into three moments, impact of this new living space “the cloud”, digital skills of a society that according to hootsuite and we are social spends on average almost 7 hours online and human rights in the era of personal information traffic.

 

FIRST MOMENT [Impacts of the CLOUD on people]

Have you ever wondered how the internet (social networks, fake news, information traffic, etc. ) impacts your daily life?

PROJECT 2_ Feeding an AI

MUI Workshops and Residence using artificial intelligence as a means to reflect on how computers learn, generate their prejudices and even understand how we are influenced.

PROJECT 4_ "Be careful the people who appear on the screen are not real"

Design of a “Call for actions” toolkit with live labs. Talks, workshops, webinars, citizen projects, etc. to co-design with citizens a way to generate the skills to function in the digital world.

PROJECT 1_ Facial recognition projects

We will reflect on the virtualization of our appearance, the way computers and humans construct their criteria as a consequence of image traffic.

PROJECT 3_ Aesthetics of the Selfie

We will talk about the perception of physical appearance influenced by the filters contained in social networks and the phenomena that result from this.

SECOND MOMENT_ Digital Education

In this section we will address the digital skills that new citizens need to contribute to the construction of the new facet of “digital citizenship”

THIRD MOMENT_ Data Rights are Human Rights

The future of human rights, how to understand human rights in the age of information trafficking.

FIRST MOMENT [Impacts of the CLOUD on people]

 

Have you ever wondered how the internet (social networks, fake news, information traffic, etc. ) impacts your daily life?

EXHIBIT

 

In this first moment we would like to start by defining some terms of the cloud that you may not know and start reflecting on the impact that the consumption of time and information in the cloud has on our lives.   

The Internet is part of almost everyone’s life. Its rise in popularity over the last decade has revolutionized the way we communicate and share information, the way we give and receive affection, the way we perceive our own bodies, our learning systems, etc., both as individuals and as a society. To reflect on all this information we have divided these phenomena as follows:

  • What is the cloud?

  • Impact on Mental Health

  • Impact on body perception

  • Time investment

  • Impact on Physical Health

  • Impact on Behavior

  • Impact on Decision Making

  • Algorithm Discrimination

What is the cloud?

 

The cloud is a global network of servers, each with a unique function. The cloud is not a physical entity, but a huge network of remote servers around the world that are connected to function as a single ecosystem.

The United Nations General Assembly has accepted that access to the Internet (cloud) is a human right, yet less than half (43%) of humanity has access. 

Of the people who have the privilege of being connected, according to hootsuite and we are social, they spend an average of 6 hours and 54 minutes on the internet.

Impact on mental health

 

Due to the large amount of time we spend in the cloud, the information we consume has an effect on us, according to “Status Of Mind, examining the positive and negative effects of social media on young people’s health,” published by the Royal Society for Public Health and the Young Health Movement, social media use is linked to increased rates of anxiety, depression and sleep disorders among young people.

A 2017 study by the UK’s Royal Society of Public Health of 1,500 young people aged 11 to 25 concluded that Snapchat and Instagram were the social networks most likely to inspire feelings of anxiety and being inadequate. 

Seven out of ten said that Instagram made them feel worse about their body image, half said Instagram and Facebook exacerbated their anxiety, and two-thirds said Facebook made cyberbullying worse.

Body Appearance

 

Doctors have discovered a trend of people bringing in their own selfies, usually edited with a smartphone app and asking for them to look more like their own photos.

The phenomenon is known as “Snapchat Dysmorphia” and is causing great concern among experts.

According to reports from the American Academy of Facial, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 55% of plastic surgeons saw patients who wanted surgery to look better in selfies, in sum, they noticed an increase in patients under 30 years old.

Impact on decision making

 

Nowadays, social networks play an important role in most people’s decision making, if we look around us, it is very likely to notice the great influence that media has on our lives. It will be evident that our life depends largely on a small device that is at our fingertips, 24 hours a day.

With this, advertising found on social networks, filters, news, bots are multiplying more and more, and this is more glimpsed when we talk about crucial events.

A very famous example is that of Cambridge Analytica, who was Donald Trump’s campaign advisor, got some 270,000 people with Facebook profiles to participate and collected data such as identities, locations and likes. Analysts went for insecure profiles (those who did not know who to vote for), after identifying them, they put in their “Fb home pages” advertising, information that would bias their reality so they could influence their opinion about the candidates.

Another phenomenon that undoubtedly affects decision making is “Fake News”, this term refers to “fake news”, unverified, fabricated or planted information; rumors, sensationalism, old news or alternative facts that are presented in order to mislead, damage and/or promote something, whether it is an ideology, an opinion or a product. This has origins from the 90’s in some US TV programs, but it started to be used again to point out false information circulating around the 2016 US elections, and was popularized worldwide when Donald Trump dismissed CNN reports for alleged links with Russia, qualifying them as Fake News.

This type of information circulating on the web affects the whole society and have served both political and private purposes. In the first case, political parties, as well as opposition groups, use them for the fulfillment of their agenda or to influence public opinion for their benefit, this polarizes the population causing people to become less tolerant, and inciting aggressiveness when issuing an opinion.

An example of the above was the United States elections in 2016, later Latin American and Australian elections, which were also believed to have been manipulated in this way.

Who owns our face?

On the current ages, the social webs take an important role at the decision making on most of the people, if we look around us, it is very likely to notice the great influence that the media has in our lives .It will be evident that our life depends too much on a small device that is at our fingertips, 24 hours a day.

With this situation, the publicity that is found in the social media, filters, news, bots who are multiplied increasingly, and this is more glimmering when we talk about crucial events.

 

A very popular example is Cambridge Analityca, who was Donald Trump’s campaign advisor, got 270,000 people to participate with profiles on Facebook and collected data such as identities, locations and tastes. The analysts went for insecure profiles (those who did not know who to vote for), after identifying them, they put advertising on their “Fb Landing Pages”, information that skewed their reality so that they could influence their opinion about the candidate.

Discriminación por medio de algoritmos

 

Los algoritmos son en muchos casos herramientas que facilitan los procesos humanos y que ayudan a encontrar patrones desconocidos para el ojo humano, es tal su capacidad que, en otros casos,  las decisiones basadas en algoritmos pueden penalizar a una persona en base a, por ejemplo, su color de piel, su género o el lugar donde reside.

Un ejemplo de esto sucedió a finales de 2018, la prensa publicó que Amazon había diseñado un algoritmo para automatizar la selección de personal, sin embargo lo descontinuaron ya que daba una puntuación menor a los perfiles de mujeres.

Los algoritmos, no están diseñados con este propósito, la discriminación algorítmica se produce, por un lado, puede ocurrir que la persona que programa o diseña el algoritmo refleje sus prejuicios. Por otro lado, los algoritmos son “entrenados” con  enormes muestras de datos, muchas veces obtenidas por medio de aprendizaje sin supervisión en la basta red de información de internet.

Ahora podemos reflexionar, ¿qué pasa con todos nosotros que pasamos en promedio 6 a 7 horas conectados en internet?, ¿Cómo el consumo de información esta afectando nuestro criterio?
