Analysis: Several Microsoft Research people are preparing papers based on their current research, and I’m considering attending myself (I’ve written before about MSR’s work in analyzing large social networks). There are three Microsoft scientists on the Committee (Dou Shen, Haizheng Zhang, and Rina Panigrahy - check out Rina’s publications on hashing and sketching algorithms). It should be a top-notch conference, co-hosted by ACM and IEEE.
But that’s way off in the future – what if you want to look at some research stuff right now? Well, I’ve been going through the related “Socio-Digital Systems” work of MSR Cambridge (UK), and they’ve just added more information to their section here of the main MSR site. That’s some neat stuff, more on the side of the actual social uses of digital data and the effects on our (still-human?) everyday lives.
