This month’s Data Science Roundtable called Anti-Social Computing: Bots, Lies, and the New Information Environment is co-hosted by the South Hub, West Hub, and Northeast Hub. It will be held on Thursday, March 9th, 2017 from Noon-1:15 PM EST. Panelists will explore how social media, online news, blogs, etc. – in conjunction with widespread access to the Internet from multiple devices – are creating a new information environment. In this environment, the norms of social interaction, conversation, public discourse, and news reporting are being rewritten.
Trolls and bots can shape conversation, shift discourse, and build bridges among groups who might not otherwise connect. The panel will explore how fake news can spread and discuss the role of different types of actors in creating, spreading, countering, and monitoring such news.

As a result of the CCC / CRA Industry Academic Survey, conducted in spring of 2015 and the CCC Industry Roundtable Discussion held on July 24, 2015, the CCC partnered with the four NSF-sponsored Big Data Regional Innovation Hubs for a program on industry-academic collaboration. Each Hub is charged with addressing regional specific big data challenges.
