Audrey Baneyx

I am interested in gender issues online and the circulation of knowledge through the prism of digital methods.

My work is located at the intersection of artificial intelligence (PhD in AI from Paris 6 university) especially around knowledge modelling and digital methods. 

I am a project manager in data sciences and a research engineer at the médialab. I work at the intersection of digital methods, knowledge modelling and designing pedagogical storytellings. I am teaching digital culture and methods and, as a mediator, developing médialab tools communities of practitioners.
My research activities come in three axes :

1.Think of different paths to resolve the problem of heterogeneity of digital data with the help of ontologies in order to improve our understanding of knowledge communities. The research led concerned the construction of epistemic networks centered around the way that communities form, how they evolve, interact and, more generally, the style of collaboration process they produce. There is a double challenge: On the one hand, to characterize the emergence and entanglement of these communities at different levels of granularity and, on the other hand, exhibit the objects of collaborations between individuals within communities.

I am co-leading the « Gender and digital spaces » working group, carried by the CNRS’ Center for Internet and Society, in which I take interest in mapping the digital areas where the question of gender construction is issued.

2. To make visible the complexity of scientific production in the wide sense, it's mechanisms and functioning (ScholarscapeSciencescape). At a time where universities are set in international rankings, the issues are important for a field like social sciences that must be able to make sense of it's activity in order to evaluate itself while the disciplines that compose it are badly represented in the wide bases of normalized bibliometrics data (Scopus, Web of Science for instance).

3.To design pedagogical storytellings for tools adapted to social science research that permits to go from the constitution of a digital textual corpus (ANTA v2) to the visualisation of the knowledge that it contains.
