The Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School is a leader in the study of the law and policy around the Internet and other emerging technologies.
Architecture and Public Policy
CIS explores how changes in the architecture of computer networks affect the economic environment for innovation and competition on the Internet, and how the law should react to those changes. This work has lead us to analyze the issue of network neutrality, perhaps the Internet's most debated policy issue, which concerns Internet user's ability to access the content and software of their choice without interference from network providers.
This year marks the fifth anniversary of this event. Presentations will explore the emerging and central role of data in fields as diverse as medicine, education, law and politics. We hope you will join us to help model the future of Data Science at UVA and beyond.
Panels and roundtables will focus on data science research on topic areas such as education, ethics, public health, environment, and public policy.
