Data: Past, Present, and Future

  • 750 CEPSR (Schapiro Research Building) (map)

Professors Jones and Wiggins will be holding a discussion and Q+A on the past, present, and future of data in our lives. Each will speak briefly on how students, scholars, and citizens make sense of data in science, public policy, and our personal lives. We invite Columbia University students (all divisions) to RSVP and to offer questions via this form.

Discussion and student questions will guide the direction of the course "Data: Past, Present, and Future" to be taught by professors Jones and Wiggins in Spring 2017, with the support of Columbia's Collaboratory program and the Leibniz Fund.


Professor Matt Jones, James R. Barker Professor of Contemporary Civilization, Department of History
