Culture analytics concerns itself with the highly interwoven and complex interactions among individuals, society, and technology that are catalyzed by the enormous growth in data that characterizes the current age. User experience design requires more than a thin interface veneer on top of an algorithmic layer. The shape of the user experience must be rooted in the computational structure from the beginning and co-designed along with the statistical and machine learning algorithms for data exploration and analysis. In order to best design the next generation of technologies to enhance communication, collaboration, and cultural understanding, and to prepare for unintended consequences, we need to incorporate a robust understanding of human and social capabilities with deep technical and mathematical skills. To accomplish this, researchers, developers, and designers must demonstrate a willingness to transcend disciplinary concerns. The funding application deadline is February 15, 2016.
