Diagrams of the Future is an ongoing research project into the diagrammatic nature of algorithmic prediction. From probability theory's "normal" distribution, to Big Data operationalised as vector spaces by machine learning systems, the production of predictions is diagrammatic all the way down. This project is a collection of attempts to diagram the future—to rationalise it as a coordinate space through geometrical operations—with the aim to question the foundations of the current algorithmic regime.
This project is part of David Benqué's PhD research in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art in London. This work is supported by Microsoft Research Cambridge (UK) through its PhD Scholarship Programme.
