Meet-Up (10/25) – The Impact of Information

Saturday October 25th, 2014 4:00 PM to 3:00 PM
 

* New Location *

eytan-adarThe Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics are having a meet-up on Saturday, October 25th from 4:00 to 7:00pm at the Classic Cup Cafe. Our special guest will be Dr. Eytan Adar, Associate Professor of Information and Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, at the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan.

This will be a little different from past meet-ups, but I think it will be a fun topic to learn more about … especially those of us who use the internet a lot.

Dr. Adar’s research is on temporal-informatics which is the study of the change of information—and our consumption of it—over time. He has had numerous papers published ranging from a variety of topics such as benevolent deception in human-computer interaction, a better way of organizing your internet feeds, the dynamics of web content, and more.

The conversation for this meetup will likely touch on many different topics, but it will have the common theme of how information on the internet is affecting us all.

The first part of the event will be for general socializing and ordering refreshments. After which, there will be some announcements, and then we’ll start the informal Q & A at approximately 4:30pm.

There is no cost to attend but donations to cover the guest speaker’s meal and beverages, as well as general group expenses are appreciated.
