Here’s to the next 100 years

This year, we’re celebrating the centennial of the Department of Journalism, established April 21,1922, by the Board of Regents. As we have explored archival documents dating to the 1920s, it’s been fun to go through photos and see the changes in technology (and fashion!) over the past 100 years.

Designing Tech with Mortality in Mind

It’s inevitable that at some point we must all “get our affairs in order,” and when we do, there are checklists, policies and professionals to help create everything from wills and trusts to advance directives. But a key element—guidance surrounding technology and end-of-life planning—is missing. Assistant Professor Jed Brubaker will work to close this gap through a five-year research project supported by a prestigious NSF CAREER grant.

Guiding Lights

In the summer of 2017, Joel Holton was one of nearly 600 personnel fighting the Keystone Fire, from which he narrowly escaped. A few years later––as a senior studying information science––he teamed up with classmates to develop new navigation aids with the needs of wildland firefighters in mind.

#FaceOff

With a brief glance at a single face, emerging facial analysis software can now categorize the gender, race, emotional state and even identity of individuals with remarkable accuracy much of the time.

Here’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot this summer––and I’ve spoken to CMCI professors who are thinking about this, too. While the situation we’re in presents challenges, this is also an incredible time to be doing the work that we do.
