If anything, the privacy issues around Facebook, Google, and other internet sites have only gotten much worse over the last year, and it seems as if legislation may be possible in the United States, following the passing last year of some privacy legislation in Europe. It's one of the first and most significant moves to establish a new American privacy identity online, with strict obligations for companies that use the Internet to collect personal information. But it is far from the first existential crisis for Europe. The continent and its countries have regularly encountered discord and the threat of dissolution.

Transcript of Episode Watch Slaughterbots. The World Wide Web just turned 30 years old, and so much has changed over those three decades because of this powerful new medium. Books, music, and video are beamed instantly around the globe, and authors, artists, and the giant industries around them have reacted in excited, complicated and sometimes fearful ways. Joining us on episode 29 is Kyle Courtney , a legal scholar and lecturer here at Northeastern University, and the copyright advisor for Harvard University.
Kyle is a leading expert on intellectual property and copyright law during the era of the Web, and someone who has thought actively and creatively about the past present and future of what we do and say online. Last year on this podcast, we told you about a large study of the news consumption habits of college students that had just gotten underway.
On this episode, we welcome back John Wihbey , assistant professor of journalism and media innovation, and the author of the forthcoming book The Social Fact: News and Knowledge in a Networked World. Transcript of episode Two years after a presidential election that shocked so many, we are still trying to understand the role that fake news sources played, and how a swarm of propaganda clouded social media. Now a comprehensive study has looked carefully at the impact of untrustworthy online sources in the election, with some surprising results, and some suggestions for how to avoid problems in the future.
He is one of the authors of Fake news on Twitter during the U.

Many of these homicide cases are cold cases, left unsolved and, too often, forgotten. She was also the First African American female judge in Massachusetts. Reading is one of the most profound things we humans do, a way for our minds to encounter new ideas, and our imaginations to run wild with stories.
For many of us, reading means words in black ink on a white page, or pixels on a screen, but for some who have visual impairments, it involves feeling raised fonts, a multisensory act that is both remarkable, and poorly understood by the sighted. Everyone knows that is the number to call in an emergency, but more recently, cities have set up , a number for citizens to call to highlight problems in their neighborhood and to request municipal services.
Who calls these numbers and why? And what does the system tell us about the way that people and governments can create better communities together? Every year, thousands of graduate students write theses on topics at the frontiers of research. Joining us on episode 23 are Anastasiya Yandulskaya, Brian Ruliffson, and Alex Lovely who are the winners of the 3 Minute Thesis competition at Northeastern University to talk about their cutting-edge studies, all of which deal with the regeneration of body parts.
Because informal speech communicates ambivalence, effort, and excitement much better than traditional academic writing and media coverage of research, podcasts present a unique opportunity to show the public how the expertise of the academy is relatable and valuable. This communication is especially important right now.
In this episode our host, Dan Cohen gives the opening keynote at the Sound Education Conference , which brought together hundreds of educational and academic podcasters and podcast listeners and held at Harvard on November 2nd. Special thanks to Doug Metzger for his opening remarks, Joseph Fridman for recording the keynote, Blair Hodges for the episode image, and to the whole Sound Education Conference team for putting on a great conference. Joining us on Episode 21 is three-term governor, presidential candidate, and public transportation advocate Michael Dukakis.
But the images they provide are of structures like arteries, bones, or tissue, rather than the very chemistry at the core of human life. Her lab is pioneering the use of nanosensors within body, and the potential applications of this work are truly amazing. In the past 30 years, the music industry has moved from vinyl records to cassettes to CDs, downloads, and streaming, all radical changes to the production, and consumption, of popular music.
The recent passing of the Music Modernization Act will further alter the industry. This means an even more radical shift for musicians themselves, and their livelihoods. After decades of research, artificial intelligence is rapidly becoming a major force in our lives, uncannily understanding our language and our photographs, and even starting to take some of our jobs. Since this transformative technology is made by human beings, it has also exposed the biases of its creators and could reinforce those biases in our world.
Her work focuses on machine learning, a centerpiece of Al. Newspapers used to an essential part of the daily lives of Americans, informing a shared consciousness of local, national and international events, shaping public opinion, and uncovering the worst abuses of the privileged and powerful. Consolidation in the industry and the rise of the internet sharply reduced the number, reach, and impact of those papers but professional journalism still plays a critical role in our society. We are joined by Dan Kennedy , a nationally known media commentator, professor at Northeastern University, and author of the recent book, Return of the Moguls.
It created a massive system of tunnels where an elevated highway once stood in the heart of the city, and added a new tunnel to Logan Airport to the east and a stunning new bridge to Charlestown to the north. It completely transformed the City of Boston and made it more walkable and livable. In the United States we are familiar with common illnesses like the cold and flu, but we only hear about many diseases from beyond our shores, like the Ebola virus, when a case unexpectedly appears here. How can we create drugs to cure these illnesses, which often affect the poorest countries first, when there is little economic incentive for drug companies to treat them?
And what will happen when a disease like Ebola suddenly becomes common here too?
In this episode, Mike Pollastri helps us understand how to address these neglected diseases in Episode Recently 50 million Facebook users had their personal information extracted and used for political and commercial purposes. Are technical fixes and awareness enough, or is it time for Facebook and other online services to be regulated?
How do cities change over time? How does planning, community input, social justice, and activism affect that change? Ted has had a storied career as an educator, activist, and leader. In the last twenty years, hydraulic fracking has transformed energy production across the United States and has made America the world's largest producer of natural gas.
Now a presence in 32 states, fracking also has registered thousands of environmental and health complaints, making it as controversial as it is transformative. How can people and communities understand what is going on a mile beneath their feet, with so many effects above ground? Her new book, just published, is entitled Fractivism: Corporate Bodies and Chemical Bonds explores the effects of fracking above and below the ground. Explore Public Lab , a community where you can learn how to investigate environmental concerns.
Using inexpensive DIY techniques, we seek to change how people see the world in environmental, social, and political terms. We use energy drawn from sources largely beyond our view, and the massive energy industry has had a similarly massive impact on our economy and the environment. But the twenty-first century has seen the rise of new forms of green energy that are upending the energy business and giving us the chance to develop a more just system.
This episode features Shalanda Baker , Professor of Law, Public Policy and Urban Affairs in the Law School at Northeastern University, who not only studies the energy industry and its finance and regulations, but has lived in and done field work in communities impacted by the energy industry. Inside all computers are ones and zeros, a binary world that excels in calculation and speed, but has difficulty with nuance, uncertainty, and complexity.
And too often, we humans use these binary machines in black and white ways. How can we account for the great diversity of our society in the digital realm? Julia Flanders, director of the Digital Scholarship Group in the library and Professor of the Practice in the English Department and Amanda Rust, Assistant Director of the Digital Scholarship Group and a Digital Humanities Librarian explain how to design digital systems to be more attentive to the true diversity of humanity.
Comics are often viewed as a lesser form of storytelling, colored as they are by the superhero movies that fill multiplexes in the summer. But in the unique way they combine hand-drawn images with equally flexible lettering, comics can also convey profound expressions of humanity. Download episode 9. Transcript of episode 9. The digital tools that we use to communicate with each other, shop and travel collect enormous amounts of data about our opinions, moods, preferences, and desires.
In turn, these services, like Facebook, Amazon, and Uber, use algorithms on that mass of data to predict what we will want to see and do and buy. How can we understand those algorithms, hidden behind the walls of these internet giants? Download episode 8. Transcript of episode 8. Every day we see the buildings and roads and people that make up our city. But just beneath the surface is another realm which is just as important: the pathways and systems that take away our trash, recycle our devices and keep our modern life functioning.
If we could trace those systems, what would we find, and what would it tell us about our society? Download episode 7. Transcript of episode 7.

For over a hundred years, movies have been synonymous with entertainment. But outside of the film industry, few people really understand how they are made, and especially how the best movies engross us through careful attention to good storytelling, encoded in dialogue and images, and, less obviously, sound. The image for this episode is the recording Pooh-the-bear who loved bread soaked in milk and would vocalize mightily when presented with it. The voice of Chewbacca was born.

It is also one of the few languages that has made the transition from a completely oral tradition to a specific written form, through the use of an entirely new set of characters created by one citizen of the Cherokee Nation.

But for hundreds of millions of people, this is a poor assumption. Globally, a quarter of a billion people have some impairment of their vision, and hundreds of millions more have trouble navigating spaces in ways the rest of us take for granted. How do we design for that large part of the population with varying abilities?
