This year’s ASIST Annual Lecture takes place on Wednesday 30th November 2016 at Edinburgh Napier University. This is the first time that any lecture in this series has been presented in the UK.
The speaker at this event is Professor Steve Fuller, Auguste Comte Chair in Social Epistemology at the University of Warwick. In a presentation entitled What, if anything, makes knowledge an improvement over information? Steve will discuss the tension between our thirst for easy access to vast quantities of information and our fears of information overload, and he will explore how concepts of information vary across contexts.
