Cassandra Project Roundtable for Computational Social Science
Who can attend?
Join a roundtable discussion on computational social science, focused on "Ethical Usage of Computer Science and the Limits of Automatic Analysis," featuring:
- Philip Resnik, Institute for Advanced Computer Studies and the Department of Linguistics, University of Maryland
- Lisa Singh, Computer Science and the Massive Data Institute, Georgetown University
- Tom Lippincott, the Johns Hopkins Center for Digital Humanities, Department of Computer Science and Human Language Technology Center of Excellence
Resnik, Singh, and Lippincott will lead a roundtable discussion on "Ethical Usage of Computer Science and the Limits of Automatic Analysis." The roundtable will be chaired by Giovanna Maria Dora Dore (Johns Hopkins), Arya D. McCarthy (Johns Hopkins), and Eva M.E. Klaus (London School of Economics).
This "Ethical Usage of Computer Science and the Limits of Automatic Analysis Roundtable" is part of the Cassandra Project roundtable discussion series that engages experts in both political and computational science from multiple universities across the U.S. Participants discuss the commonalities, divergences, and hopes for the two fields, tackling difficult topics such as the limits of automatic analysis and applications of big data.
The roundtable discussion series provides an opportunity for voices that are underrepresented, both in terms of identity and research focus, to be brought to the forefront of the field. Each event will be live-streamed and live-transcribed for people who are hard of hearing. Further, this series gives students the opportunity to speak and listen in dialogues about the co-evolution of the two fields.
This event follows the success of the first roundtable at the APSA Annual Meeting in Montreal.
