Prof. Ralph Schroeder: "Digital Transformations of Knowledge"

, 12:15 pm to

Im Rahmen der Ringvorlesung "Internet & Gesellschaft" hat Prof. Dr. Ralph Schroeder vom Oxford Internet Institute einen Vortrag zum Thema "Digital Transformations of Knowledge" gehalten. Die Slides der Präsentation erhalten sie hier.

In recent years, there has been a proliferation of research projects and programmes under the labels of e-Science, e-Humanities, cyberinfrastructures, and e-Infrastructures. The broader term ‘e-Research’ encompasses all of these, and can be defined in shorthand form as: distributed and collaborative digital tools and data for online knowledge production. These digital approaches have transformed knowledge and reconfigured disciplines; especially the relation between computer science and other fields, but also more fundamentally between scientific approaches and others that are less scientific. Recently, ‘big data’ is adding to these transformations. This talk will present a wide range of case studies in this area, to ask about the consequences of e-Research and related changes - for scholarship, and for how we understand the world around us: what kinds of new disintermediations and intermediations are taking place between the knower and the objects of knowledge, and how can we understand these changes from a sociological perspective?
