InfoCamp 2021: Our Data / Our Selves
What is InfoCamp?
Launched in 2010, InfoCamp has become a premier event within the information community. Held every year by the students at UC Berkeley School of Information, it draws over 150 professionals and students from different disciplines and interests such as engineering, UX design and research, data science, product management, and tech policy, and challenges participants to re-imagine information technology and bring solutions to real-world problems. The 2021 InfoCamp will feature an ideathon, where participants brainstorm solutions to real-world problems, and a speaker series.
Our Data / Our Selves
Are our data ourselves? Are our data from ourselves? Or are our data representations of ourselves? With the development of AI and machine learning technologies, data can be applied and utilized in increasingly more settings and purposes, yet it also brings its share of controversies and crises. This year, we would like to draw attention to the ownership and distribution of data, focusing on conflicts of interest between businesses & individuals in data control and policy.
This free event welcomes any undergraduate and graduate student interested in information and technology. You can register with a team (3–4 people) or individually. For individual sign-ups, we will provide the opportunity to form a team during the event.
