Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Este trabajo analiza la creciente importancia que han tenido los ecosistemas de gestión de la
atención durante la etapa pandémica. Se afirma que la consolidación de los sistemas de inteligencia artificial descansa en su capacidad de producir efectos reales, es decir, en su capacidad de “agencia”. Finalmente, se argumenta que la demanda por una mayor regulación de dichos sistemas está limitada a la propia identidad de aquello que requiere ser regulado: los códigos y algoritmos. Esto abre nuevos desafíos tanto para la política pública como para las futuras investigaciones en el campo de la opinión pública.

English Abstract: This paper analyzes the growing importance of care management ecosystems during the pandemic stage. It is claimed that the consolidation of artificial intelligence systems rests on their capacity to produce real effects, that is, on their capacity as “agency”. Finally, it is argued that the demand for greater regulation of these systems is limited to the identity of what needs to be regulated, that is, the codes and algorithms. The regulation of algorithms opens up new challenges for both public policy and perspectives for future research in the public opinion’s field.
