Complexity Science, Learning Analytics & Collective Intelligence | FuturICT Jobs Board | Scoop.it
FuturlCT is a FET Flagship project using collective, participatory research, integrated across the fields of ICT, the social sciences and complexity science, to design socio-‐inspired technology and develop a science of global, socially interactive systems. The project will bring together, on a global level, Big Data, new modelling techniques and new forms of interaction, leading to a new understanding of society and its co-‐ evolution with technology. It will place Europe at the forefront of a major scientific drive to understand, explore and manage our complex, connected world in a more sustainable and resilient manner.

In this open access special issue of EPJST, you’ll find a fascinating set of contributions from European scientists who set out a 10 year research agenda within their fields: what are the really tough problems? There are also visionary position papers outlining the kind of socio-technical infrastructure that FuturICT will investigate, and a foregrounding of the ethical dimensions that human Big Data and Analytics always raise.

VACANCY: Open Faculty Position in Cyber-Physical Risk Management

VACANCY: Open Faculty Position in Cyber-Physical Risk Management | FuturICT Jobs Board | Scoop.it
FuturICT's insight:

Posted on Behalf of EPFL

Open Faculty Position in Cyber-Physical Risk Management

 Cyber-physical risk management is one of the identified areas of interest for a broad faculty search being conducted by the School of Computer and Communication Sciences (IC) at EPFL.  The search in this sub-area is targeted at the level of tenure-track assistant professor.

The professorship will be affiliated with the EPFL Center for Risk Analysis and Governance (CRAG<http://crag.epfl.ch/&gt;) which also has resources available for Visiting Professorships and provides a link to the International Risk Governance Council (IRGC<http://www.irgc.org/&gt;) and its academic network.

 

The field of cyber-physical risks, security, privacy, surveillance and, in general, risk management for the digital world poses critical challenges that have both technical and governance aspects. The capacity to deal with these multi-dimensional aspects will be strengthened by the association of the professorship with CRAG, which can support activities in research and education, and IRGC, which provides a convening platform for international and multi-stakeholder dialogue.

 

For the official IC announcement, further information and application procedures, please see: http://professeurs.epfl.ch/page-99464-en.html

Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2013

 

(I am sending this announcement on behalf of Janet Hering and Prof. Willy Zwaenepoel, Chairman of the recruiting committee.)

 

With my best regards

 

 Marie-Valentine Florin

As Startups Produce More Data, the Search for Data Scientists Grows Frantic

As Startups Produce More Data, the Search for Data Scientists Grows Frantic | FuturICT Jobs Board | Scoop.it

The current, accepted wisdom is that those who understand Big Data – the enormous datasets of information being collected with nearly every click of every computing device on the planet – will rule the roost in the future. Presumably, if you can predict behavior by measuring and monitoring people’s machines down to an almost atomic level, you can make both your customers and your shareholders much happier. (See Google.)

There’s just one problem: outside of companies like Google that have long made use of rich rosters of PhDs, there are nowhere near enough “data scientists” — graduate-level candidates with backgrounds in machine learning or statistics — to analyze the massive streams of information that are being produced, and that gap is growing by the day.
