Thursday, March 27, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join a conversation with MIT Professor D. Fox Harrell and MIT Researcher Todd Harper as they discuss the ways in which cultural values are both created and represented in digital media. Explore how online communities and computer code both give rise to shared values – through the interactions between people online, as well as the underlying computational structure of video games, websites, and other online communities
D. Fox Harell is Associate Professor of Digital Media at MIT in the Comparative Media Studies Program and in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
Todd Harper is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the MIT Game Lab.
