How can data science and the arts and humanities learn from one another?
Two days of events February 7-8 considering the growing digitization of the cultural record and the explosion of new data generation, collection, and analysis practices create a new state of cultured data: culture as data, and data as a driver of culture. Our symposium examines this emerging condition, considering both how analytic techniques enable new understandings of culture, and how the proliferation of data in everyday life changes how culture is produced, distributed, and influenced. In these panels, we wrestle with new modes of scholarship and cultural production enabled by data-forward analysis methods, and consider perspectives from the arts and humanities for data science practice. What can these disciplines teach one another about their possibilities and limits towards realizing a more just, informed, and culturally-rich future?
With 200 RSVPs for both days, and a robust and diverse turnout, the event was a success!

I’ll be presenting on the panel Abstractions and Automatons: Balancing Myth and the Machine at SLSA 2019: the 33RD Annual Meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts at UC Irvine on Friday, November 8th.
I have contributed live computer vision and a textual sensor feed for #projectamelia, a new interactive live performance collaboration with #bricolagetheater and #probablemodels in Pittsburgh, PA. The show will run through November 2nd.
I gave a talk, “Embedded Computing in the Intimate Everyday” at Nokia Bell Labs Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T). It was great to share my work with the researchers at Nokia Bell, and spend time brainstorming on art and empathy.
The Clarke Center team had a two day visit at Nokia Bell Labs Murray Hill, NJ headqaruters. What an awesome experience! I got to play the voder, one of the original speech synthesis technologies developed at Bell. Many amazing projects came out of E.A.T.’s arts and engineering collaboration in the 60s. I’m excited to develop new work with the Nokia Bell engineers.
