LASER Boston "Future_Data"
 

Starting out this new year, our first LASER of 2021 will address the vast world of data and its future. Over the past two decades, big data has become indispensable and is increasing exponentially in amount. What are the issues that result from our unquenchable thirst for collecting and creating data? What are the possibilities that it provides us? And what are the challenges we face now, and will in the future? Three impressive speakers from the arts and sciences will share their work and thoughts around this topic. Join us on January 22nd to discuss these questions and more.

LASER Boston: Future_Data will feature Dr. Robert Grass (Titulary Professor at the Functional Materials Laboratory at ETH Zurich), Refik Anadol (globally-known media artist and director), and Christine Choirat (Adjunct Lecturer on Biostatistics at Harvard and the Chief Innovation Officer at the Swiss Data Science Center).
