Josh Teitelbaum (Georgetown) passed along the following conference (set for Mon. Oct. 29) announcement -- focusing on issues incident to "big data." Notably (and helpfully), a video of the conference will be available to those interested yet unable to attend.
Big Data and Big Challenges for Law and Legal Information: Georgetown Law Library – A Symposium in Celebration of 125 Years
The Georgetown Law Library invites you to a symposium in celebration of its 125th anniversary, Big Data and Big Challenges for Law and Legal Information, on October 29 at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC.
Throughout the day, panelists from the academic, advocacy, government, and library communities will discuss how very large or complex data sets can be used to develop new understandings and inform public policy – connecting points of information electronically, across numerous, vast, and often unrelated stores of data to distill meaning in ways impossible a few short years ago. Together, we will share ideas on the theory and practice of balancing privacy costs and public benefit, and the many incentives, practical applications, and new technologies implicated in the growth of big data.
Registration for the symposium is free and open to all, however space is limited. To register and view additional information, please click here.
If you are unable to attend, please note that a video recording will be available at this web address following the event.
