Big Data, Big Libraries, Big Problems?: The 2014 Lib-Tech Anti-Talk

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What do you know about technologies like the Semantic Web, Big Data, and MOOCs - phenomena libraries are increasingly becoming involved with?  Is it ʺall goodʺ?  Why are we sometimes fearful about new technologies and the power they present to us, seen for example in pop-culture icons such as HAL, the Daleks, and the Borg? If you are one who wants to look at technology and its effects with a critical eye, this time of meandering philosophical reflection and questioning might be for you.
