Bernard Stiegler on Art for the Society of Hyper Control

(In french) French philosopher Bernard Stiegler and art critic Colette Tron discuss the emergence of a society of hypercontrol as an evolution from Deleuze's development of the society of control and Foucault's concept of the society of surveillance. New algorithms using user profiling anticipate user needs and actions and thus channel their behavior in the desired directions of the internet companies.He draws on Chris Anderson that language translation algorithms no longer draws for instance on the expertise of linguists but just on pattern recognition ( the end of theory). Stiegler speculates as to whether in the anthropocene era the conditions can be created so that groups of internauts can develop an 'art of hypercontrol' and an economy of negative entropy to counteract climate change and other impacts.
