Join TIPI as we welcome Eric Meyer as the new dean of the School of Information! Eric will talk about Human-Machine networks.
The story of society is inextricably bound with the rise of tools and machines. In the digital age, the machines we have created have become immensely powerful on the one hand, but are limited in many ways. This talk uses examples from research over the last decade including citizen science, digital scholarship, crisis response, and knowledge creation on the internet to explore how humans and machines work jointly and independently in complex socio-technical assemblages.
