Explore the latest data and engineering research from the Columbia University community. Poster Sessions bring together DSI centers, members, and Columbia students to exhibit new projects.

Hosted by the DSI Data, Media and Society Center

About: We use data generated by people and data about people to understand human behavior.

We study the ways in which we can use data to understand human behavior, and we address questions about how data and data processing are shaping how we work, how we live, and what it means to be a person in a networked, digitized world. We also design and build new tools for using data collections inside and outside of the University. Learn More.
