#aic2016 Algorithms in Culture 2016 Conference

Thursday, December 1, 2016: Berkeley Institute of Data Science, U.C. Berkeley (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1adae4S4sE)
Friday, December 2, 2016: CSTMS, 470 Stephens Hall, U.C. Berkeley (first session: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHm6XjzUgIk. Due to technical difficulties, we do not have recordings of the other two sessions on Friday. Apologies!)

Join the conversation on the role that algorithms play in culture, today and through history. A slate of 30 luminaries and rising stars from around the world, including keynote speaker Helen Nissenbaum, will open up the study of algorithms beyond the traditional concerns and approaches of computer science, while still tracking the computational practices - especially around "Big Data" - that often deploy them today.

The presenters' papers are also under consideration for one of two special issues in HSNS (humanities/historical focus) and in Big Data and Society (contemporary and big data focus).

This conference is free, open to the public, and ADA-accessible. No pre-registration is required. See our schedule for details.
