Description

Please join the Tech Policy Lab at our Fall Distinguished Lecture with Terry Winograd and Alan Borning for a discussion at the intersection of personal politics and technical expertise. Terry Winograd is a leader in human-computer interaction and the design of technologies for development. Professor Winograd advised the creators of Google and was a founding member of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility. Alan Borning is an expert in programming languages and human computer interaction. Professor Borning pioneered information systems for civic engagement, among them OneBusAway, a set of digital tools that provide real-time transit information; UrbanSim (think SimCity for real); and the Living Voters Guide, an experiment in social media for an informed electorate.
