WEBINAR: Technology (Non-)Use as a Network in Emerging Tech and Internet of Things
January 10, 2018, Hosted by Radhika Garg
The user has been central to the way technology is conceptualized, designed, used, and studied in sociotechnical research and recently even non-users have started to become productive foci of this analysis.
This webinar discusses (non-)use of emerging technologies, such as Internet of Things, under the lens of “(Non-)user as a network”.
This early work-in-progress argues how power relations of stakeholders (organizations, regulators, policy makers) and social influences affect the way users decide to use or not use a technology.

WEBINAR: Cloud, Microservices, and Other Trends in Enterprise IT Systems
December 7, 2017, Hosted by Carlos Caicedo
Modern enterprise IT environments have been undergoing a series of transformations over the last few years due to the rise of new technologies, services, and operational paradigms. The traditional IT professional that would be sifting through cables, managing physical servers, and interacting with networking equipment via command line interfaces is disappearing.\
A new kind of enterprise IT professional is needed. One that understands the challenges, complexities, and business value of technologies and trends such as cloud-based infrastructure and services, containers, software-defined networking, and network virtualization, just to mention a few.
In this presentation, Professor Carlos Caicedo will describe many of these trends and how modern enterprises that rely heavily on data-based services and infrastructure are embracing or need to embrace the flexibility and capabilities of many of these trends to enhance their data-centric operations today and in the near future.
WEBINAR: Should you improve your Hadoop skills or learn time series analytics?
October 11, 2017, Hosted By Daniel Acuna
Countless Data Science (DS) tools are touted as basic requirements for almost any organization. Ironically, these recommendations are too often based on opinion rather than data. In this talk, Prof. Acuna will showcase preliminary research on trying to understand past and future trends in DS by using DS itself—or DS of DS.
Prof. Acuna uses historical records of open DS tools together with their actual usage over time. With unsupervised and supervised analyses, his preliminary results suggest that tools around Hadoop, SQL, and MapReduce have been steadily declining over the years, whereas tools for time series analyses have become surprisingly popular.
Prof. Acuna will then discuss how this new way of looking at the DS tool market might improve training for aspiring Data Scientists.
