    Friday, October 2 at 9:00 am – 12:30 pm PDT for Data Practices a conference co-sponsored by CESTA, Stanford Libraries, and the Data Science Institute.

    Speakers: Anne Burdick, Jo Guldi, Mark Hansen

    Researchers in every field of study have access to far more data than could have been imagined even a decade ago. The scale and speed of data creation has opened up exciting new paths of inquiry while, at the same time, introducing new kinds of data bias and challenges in the form of reproducibility and reliability of results. The Data Practices conference is an opportunity to learn from each other across theoretical and methodological divides, and to address the social, ethical, and political implications of the boundlessness of data today. Jo Guldi: The Dangerous Art of Text Mining: Thinking About Monkeys, Violence, and Time in an Age of Automated Information Retrieval

    \”Mass digitization has created other-worldly landscapes onto which scholars and entrepreneurs have projected their fantasies: dreams about a deep history of human evolution and schemes for predicting human interaction and markets. What is the truth of the new troves of data and what we can find there?\”

    Anne Burdick: Books, Algorithms, and Robots: Designing Architectures of Knowledge

    \”Brick-and-mortar libraries might seem like an unlikely starting point for a discussion of data practices. Yet it is precisely the heavy materiality of the library’s modular units (books) and physical infrastructure (floors and shelves) that makes evident the inseparability of design, data structures, and models of knowledge.
