Gandy theorises that the attentions given to classification, in its naming as relevant/not relevant,
criminal/innocent, and so on, are determined by the problems assigned to each instance of its enquiry.
In other words, types are assigned to associated preemptive actions based on the desired outcomes.
The assignment of relevancy can then be seen as assigning relations of power, and the ownerships of
this power reside in the ability to name a particular instance within certain contexts that require
attention <ref>Becker, K. (2009) The Power of Classification: Culture, Context, Command, Control, Communications, Computing. in Becker, K. and Stalder, F. (eds.) (2009) Deep Search: The Politics of Search Beyond Google. Innsbruck: Studienverlag Gesmbh</ref>
What emerges is the quantification of life and social relations that carry potentials to produce other powers and biases within the same spaces that hold great benefit for our social environments. Within this framework classifications are the grounds on which both imbalances and social advances are created and articulated.
