Description

UCLA Department of Information Studies presents The 2019 Kenneth Karmiole Lecture in Archival Studies

Archival Explorations in Computational Treatments of Justice, Human Rights and Cultural Heritage Records

In this presentation Dr. Marciano will discuss ways in which computational thinking can be “infused” into archival studies education. This will be illustrated through a case study on the automatic detection of personally identifiable information (PII) in Japanese-American WWII Incarceration Camp Records. Topics discussed will include: digital curation, design and construction of computational models, transparency, and algorithmic accountability.

Dr. Richard Marciano is a professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland and director of the Digital Curation Innovation Center (DCIC). Prior to that, he conducted research at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) for over a decade. His research interests center on digital preservation, sustainable archives, cyberinfrastructure, and big data. He is also the 2017 recipient of Emmett Leahy Award for achievements in records and information management. With international partners, he has launched a Computational Archival Science (CAS) initiative to explore the opportunities and challenges of applying computational treatments to archival and cultural content. He holds degrees in Avionics and Electrical Engineering, a Master's and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Iowa, and conducted a Postdoc in Computational Geography.
