J. Daniel Rogers, Ph.D.,  Curator of Archaeology, Department of Anthropology, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

The past is a mysterious and complicated land. To make sense of such a place, many archaeologists now employ sophisticated analytical tools in combination with older methods. Advances in computational capabilities, especially in agent-based modeling and network analysis have opened new paths for the study of social dynamics and have sparked a shift in theoretical developments. As archaeology engages with the cyber research future the challenges of massive data, generative methodologies and computing capacity have taken on new importance.

The ASU Working Group for Research Computing is presenting this seminar.
