Computing and Society

Computing and Society
Computing has contributed to tremendous advances in communication, science, medicine, economics, the arts, and many other fields and areas of our lives. We now employ myriad computational tools that enhance our ability to interact and to express ourselves creatively. Our access to vast amounts of information and raw data holds the promise of helping us solve some of humankind’s most vexing problems, from global health and poverty to climate change. In this seminar we will study some of the big ideas in computing that underlie the ongoing explosion of innovation we are experiencing, and will analyze the many ways in which computing affects society. 3 hrs. sem.
