More critically, these technical systems serve a discourse of security and defense—­of life, futurity, and value.

3). For the most part, these systems run themselves. This intelligence is not always (in fact usually not) humanly controlled. And often it is stupid. ”61 One might even ask why, under such conditions, build so many interfaces and visualize at all? 62 It is precisely the older memory of surveillance and knowledge that drives an unremitting desire to increase the penetration of sensors, recording instrumentation, and analytic techniques in these territories of ubiquitous computing. Digital infrastructures, therefore, like the colonial archives depicted by the anthropologist Ann Stoler, are produced through “grids of intelligibility .

I trace the networks of interchange between cybernetic ideas of mind and the work of political scientists, such as the aforementioned Harvard and Yale professor Karl Deutsch, the organizational management, finance, and artificial intelligence pioneer Herbert Simon, and a number of other human and social scientists.
