Social, Computer Scientists Want to Share Data On Group Behavior
NC State social and computer scientists have collaborated to develop a large data set on how group behavior and technology influence decision-making – and they want to share that data with other researchers.
Sci and Spy: When Research and Intelligence Communities Collaborate
When NC State and the NSA created the joint Laboratory for Analytical Sciences, they soon discovered that a funny thing happens when academic researchers collaborate with the intelligence community: they feel like they're being spied on. An interdisciplinary research team is exploring the challenges inherent in bringing together experts from myriad disciplines and backgrounds who have never worked together. That team, including our college's Kathleen Vogel, is sharing some of the lessons it has learned at the world’s largest scientific meeting in February: the AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

Engineers have their own way of talking about their work. Computer scientists often speak a different kind of code. Statisticians employ yet another specialized language. Get them all together and it can feel like a veritable Tower of Babel. That's why NC State’s Laboratory for Analytic Sciences invited experts in communication, social science, management and design to join them.
