ACM@UIOWA: Tech Talk with Professor Juan Pablo Hourcade- Giving Out Superpowers: A Discussion of Ethics, Cognitive Processes, and the Future of Interactive Technology

Friday, October 22, 2021 5:00pm to 6:45pm
Seamans Center
Abstract: The use of interactive technologies is changing the way our cognitive processes work: from perception to memory, attention, learning, problem solving, communication, and metacognition. In fact, we may be seeing the beginnings of one of the largest shifts in cognition brought about by technology, perhaps even bigger than the changes brought by handwriting and mathematical notation. The problem is that we have largely been reactive. For the most part, technology designers develop what…

TriNetX Training

Thursday, October 28, 2021 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Virtual
TriNetX training This training will provide an in depth look at TriNetX and show you how to use the tool. We will go through building a study, searching for a specific population, and finally what information you gather from the specific cohort. We will also discuss next steps on getting data extracted for research. After this training you will have a thorough understanding of how to use TriNetX and what the process is to get data extracted for research studies.
