Gary King: Reverse Engineering Chinese Censorship


On March 6th at 4:15 the Digital and Computational Knowledge Initiative is very happy to be hosting Professor Gary King, the Albert J. Weatherhead III University Professor at Harvard University. A member of the Department of Government there, King is one of the most impressive thinkers and researchers into the social scientific possibilities of Big Data.

He will speak on “Reverse Engineering Chinese Censorship”, a talk that will describe how he and his collaborators were able to harvest vast amounts of data and then analyze and test the effects and policy implications of the Chinese government’s censorship of social network information.

Please announce this talk to your students and try to come yourself.
