We are very pleased to announce that 6 of the speeches from the first day of the recent International Conference on Internet Science are now available on YouTube!
Talks by the invited speakers Ziga Turk, Martin Hynes and Carl-Christian Buhr’s are all now available to view, as are the ‘setting the scene’ lectures from keynote speakers Urs Gasser, Jon Crowcroft and Andrea Matwyshyn.
"WSIS’s “summit” status (thus, not that of a permanent intergovernmental organisation), only enabled it to make recommendations crafted by consensus. However, because of the novelty of its approach and the vocabulary used to convey the urgency of addressing ICT issues in the global political arena, WSIS is widely regarded as having introduced, in the first half of the 2000s, a shift in the understanding and the appropriations of ICT-related changes and the development of the internet.
ITU World Telecommunication/ICT Policy Forum opens in GenevaGeneva, 14 May, 2013 — Over 800 delegates from the private sector, government, NGOs and Internet-related organizations are meeting in Geneva this week for ITU’s fifth World Telecommunication/ICT Policy Forum, a regular multi-stakeho
The study of science at the individual micro-level frequently requires the disambiguation of author names. The creation of author's publication oeuvres involves matching the list of unique author names to names used in publication databases. Despite recent progress in the development of unique author identifiers, e.g., ORCID, VIVO, or DAI, author disambiguation remains a key problem when it comes to large-scale bibliometric analysis using data from multiple databases.
Our own Robin Dundar from @i_science spoke on the final panel: "In this conference, archaeologists and computer scientists present new approaches to understanding knowledge networks in the ancient world and present day. The analysis of networks is now recognized as an important tool for understanding social, economic and political relations as a means of communication in both past and present-day communities.
The conference was organised by the EU funded Network of Excellence in Internet Science (EINS). Internet science was explored from various viewpoints. Social, economic, political and legal perspectives were strongly represented. The technological aspects of internet science were also discussed, with a special focus on the possibilities which computer science offers for studying internet science.
Yale will establish an Institute of Network Science to bring together researchers from many disciplines to advance the study of networks, President-Elect Peter Salovey announced April 11. "The study of networks is dramatically transforming many academic fields and practices,” Salovey said. “The Yale Institute of Network Science (YINS) will be a novel collaboration of faculty from the sciences that explore and contribute to this exciting new interdisciplinary field of knowledge.” YINS will be co-directed by Daniel A.
Kevin is the author of "Digital Tornado: The Internet and telecoms policy" (FCC, 1997), the groundbreaking study of how limited regulation helped the Internet develop. He now has taught 2 MOOC courses on gamification (Jnternet science affecting business strategy as well as society) and these slides explain how: http://www.slideshare.net/kwerb/teaching-gamification?utm_source=slidesh...
Economics will not be the only social science to contribute to the new computer science. Sociology and psychology will also have important roles. Increasingly, systems are being built that cross different cultures. We will want to utilise the unique characteristics of those cultures but we will also want a simple system that can be understood by individuals from all cultures. Of course, the way that a computer system presents information can be modified so that an American sees ideas presented in English and a Chinese sees ideas in Mandarin.
