Event Details:

Dr. Bridget Algee-Hewitt (Senior Research Scientist at CCSRE and CESTA Affiliate) is coordinating the workshop:

"Technology Evolutions and Research Revolutions: a Workshop on the Theory, Practice and Ethics of New Data, Algorithms, and Tools for Questions of Science and Society” 

This event focuses on the practical and ethical challenges as well as the potential for discovery that new technologies for data capture, curation/dissemination, and analysis bring to the social sciences and humanities. It will feature a series of talks and hands-on demos of the technologies (laser scanning, toolkits & software, 3D printing, web-based exploration models) by Stanford and external researchers. It seeks to bring greater exposure to areas for which these science methods and social issues have not been well-explored, including human rights, forensics, ecology, archaeology, museum and library studies, human biology, etc. This event is open to members of the Stanford and Bay Area university communities.
