We live now in a world that is deeply linked to computers. We seek aid from these computers so we can deal with our everyday and work data. On the web, it is through those same computers that we access such data. Nevertheless, it is through software that we make it meaningful so it can be transformed into something relevant thus transformed into information. This empowerment that new technology has brought to a wide variety of users has allowed them to become users and producers of their own information. In order to communicate such knowledge as information, it requires a transformation into data and vice versa.
This session will present an interdisciplinary perspective including Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Web Science, along with other Humanities disciplines such as Art and Design in an attempt to understand the different factors and perspectives when communicating to other people and computers.
