    (2023-06-19) Denham, Elizabeth; Kahle, Brewster; Khokhar, Masud; Ridley, Michael
    The emergence of artificial intelligence (AI), social media, and quantum computing is fundamentally transforming the way we process and understand information, and will have far-reaching implications for human culture and society. This panel of distinguished international experts will explore the shining lights and dark shadows of AI, quantum technologies, and social media platforms. The panel will explore the need for developers and policymakers to prioritize ethical considerations in the development and deployment of these technologies and strategies to combat the spread of misinformation. They will also discuss the ethical implications of these technologies, particularly in terms of privacy and bias as we navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of information technology. Moderated by Dave Obee. *The title of this event is inspired by a quote from Marshall McLuhan from the lecture The Medium Is the Message (1977) part 1, volume 3.

    (2011-10-31) Crompton, Constance
    Online publication challenges our notion of the scholarly edition in a number of ways: the resulting editions require teamwork to produce, can be perpetually updated, and open up new avenues of collaboration with users. Drawing on examples from the Networked Interface for Nineteenth-Century Electronic Scholarship (NINES), The Yellow Nineties Online, and the Devonshire Manuscript: A Social Edition, Constance Crompton discusses role of open access online editions in the changing shape of humanities scholarship.
