Over the past decade, the way in which faculty pursue their research endeavors has changed drastically. Advances in computing power, artificial intelligence, and digital interfaces have provided a newfound ability to mine large data sets, harness machine learning, and open up new opportunities for collaboration and sharing. Reflecting on the changes of the past 10 years, what have we learned, and what could still be to come?
A panel of experts joins The Chronicle for “Putting Power to Interdisciplinary Use,” an hourlong virtual forum examining how STEM and humanities scholars are using new technologies and working together to solve pressing societal problems. Join us as we ask and answer:
- What roles do research institutions play now?
- How has a decade of rapid technological changes affected the work of researchers?
- What could the changes of the past 10 years mean for the future?
