Marshall Scott Poole, Director of ICHASS

GroupScope: A Multimodal System for the Study of Large Group Dynamics

 

Interested in collective action, tracking emergence service providers (live world tracking)...want to track large groups (hundreds...)

 

GroupScope: an envionment that will develop technologies to understand social interactions with a fidelity that enables breakthrough social research. 

 

Claims that he hopes the computer will do the drudgery and leave him to do the fun stuff; however, as the group of us work on coding the agenda...that is still requiring some of the drudgery (and the agenda is a short text!)

 

 Learning about HathiTrust (large text archive/corpus)

 

10:00am

Open Lab to work and collaborate.

 

11:40am Lunch

 

1:00pm Advanced Visualization 3D Lab

2:10pm: Conclusion

10 Things to Consider...

How to work in computational humanities or a collection of irresponsible metaphors

*Think like a fountain, not like a pond

*Knowthe branches of CS you want to work with...homework is good

*Think big, then work backwards...

*...Towards a proof of concept that can get you a publication or a grant

*You are a bat in a cave. Use your sonar.

*Your technical and scientific colleagues will learn from you

*Sometimes alliances of talented people make great research ideas, instead of great research ideas making alliances of talented people

*You are important specifically because you do not see everything as quantitative data

*But understanding which tiny pieces (or what kinds) of quantitative data (or descrete tasks) may fuel your broader analysis is crucial.

*Tech for discovery, not just implementation.  

*The bridging of low level data features to high level semantic concepts is not just a challenge facing DH; it is one of the signal challenges of the information age.
