Human computation and conflict

Juan Pablo Hourcade and Lisa Nathan wrote a chapter for the Handbook of Human Computation titled Human computation and conflict. It provides an overview of ways in which human computation may be used to promote peace, but also how it could be counter-productive. There is a draft version of the chapter available online.

HCI for Peace Ideathon at CHI 2013

HCI for Peace is hosting a SIG meeting at CHI 2013 in Paris. This SIG will be the first opportunity for CHI attendees to meet during the main part of the conference, share their ideas, and provide concrete ways to move forward with this line of research. We are calling it an "Ideathon" because we want to get lots of ideas on the role HCI researchers can play in preventing, de-escalating, and recovering from armed conflict.

The meeting will be on Wednesday, May 1st, and 9am in room 362/363.
