Abstract

The explosion in the widespread use of the Internet and social media and the ubiquity of low cost computing have increased the possibilities for understanding cultural behaviors and expressions, while at the same time have facilitated opportunities for making cultural artifacts both accessible and comprehensible. The rapidly proliferating digital footprints that people leave as they crisscross cyberspace offer a treasure trove of cultural information, where culture is considered to be expressive of the norms, beliefs and values of a group. This program encourages the exploration of the unsolved mathematical opportunities that are emerging in this cultural information space.
