Information Access Seminar

The Networked Information Landscape: Surveying Recent Developments and Future Prospects

Friday, December 3, 2021
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm PST

Clifford Lynch

This talk will broadly survey what I think are key recent developments in the networked information landscape, with primary but not exclusive focus on the research and higher education sectors, and identify key prospective developments and decision points for the next few years.

The discussion at the seminar will inform my shaping of my plenary talk at the upcoming CNI meeting later in December (which will be recorded and made public after the meeting). I’m particularly interested in participant views on whether I’ve captured the key issues, and what I’ve missed.

Face masks are required indoors at all times at UC Berkeley, regardless of vaccination status.
