Tanja Aitamurto

I examine the Open X  in my research projects, that is, the impact of collective intelligence on democracy, journalism and new product design, namely media innovations. I define crowdsourcing, crowdfunding and co-creation as methods for tapping into the collective intelligence of the crowd(s). I also examine Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) as civic technologies. I use a variety of methods in my studies, including NLP technologies for analyzing large unstructured datasets, controlled experiments, and qualitative analysis methods.

Basically, I'm a social scientist turned almost into an engineer. Engineering is like yoga or motorcycle riding: once you start you can't stop. 

I'm postdoctoral Brown Fellow at the Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Stanford. You can find more about my work on this website. Welcome!
