    New Frontiers

    The internet and social media have created an explosion of social and behavioral data to help us better understand human behavior and social interaction. Our Info Sci leaders are at the forefront of this interdisciplinary research.
In Information Science we look at the interactions between people and technology, how technology is shaping individual lives and social groups, as well as how the ways that people use technology can shape new developments.
