Sharing Sensitive Data with Confidence: The DataTags System, at Harvard University, Monday, December 14, 2015:

Presented by Mercè Crosas, Michael Bar-Sinai and Latanya Sweeney.

Society generates data on a scale previously unimagined. Wide sharing of these data promises to improve important aspects of life such as health and education, by increasing their quality and lowering their cost. However, these same data often include sensitive information about people that could cause serious harms if shared widely. A multitude of regulations, laws and best practices protect data that contain sensitive personal information.

You Are Not Your User: Dispelling Usability Myths with Harvard's Dataverse, at JavaOne, San Francisco, California, Thursday, October 29, 2015:

Presented by: Gustavo Durand and Elizabeth Quigley

All of us have experience in developing Java applications, but how many of us know how best to make them usable? UX is a team effort, not just one person’s role. This presentation goes over some common UX myths and how a developer and a UXer can work together to improve the UX of an application. Reviewing examples from the development effort of Harvard’s Dataverse Project, it shows how this project has dispelled some of these myths and solved them with Java techniques. It also shares some simple ways to Read more about You Are Not Your User: Dispelling Usability Myths with Harvard's Dataverse
