What kind of science can information science be?

Michael Buckland
2011 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Instead of asking what Information Science is or what we might wish it to become, we ask instead what kind of field it can be given our assumptions about it.  ...  We conclude that if information science is concerned with what people know, then it is a form of cultural engagement and, at most, a science of the artificial.  ...  These principles provide a basis not only for examining individual notions of information, but also to consider what kind of a field Information Science can be and, thereby, identify plausible terrain  ...

What should be automated?

Matti Tedre
2006 Proceedings of the 1st ACM international workshop on Human-centered multimedia - HCM '06  
In 1989 the ACM task force on the Core of Computer Science argued that "What can be (effectively) automated?" is "the fundamental question underlying all of computing".  ...  The question "What can be effectively automated?" indeed draws some fundamental limits of automatic computation.  ...  is the central question in computability theory, which studies what can be, in principle, computed with any kind of machinery. The theoretical question "What can be effectively automated?"  ...

Let's be baroque!

Dixi Louise Strand
2005 European Journal of Information Systems  
Discussions went back and forth as to whether one needs methods at all, what good they really do, how they might be improved, or alternately, what kind of educational framework (or theory?)  ...  What happens if we abandon thinking about information systems (IS) in terms of fixed prescriptions or scientific models?  ...  Being critical and informing Being critical and making new empirical material available can be seen as another way of extending and informing the field and practice of systems development.  ...

Florent Pasquier, Basarab Nicolescu

Well-being as being well—a Heideggerian look at well-being

Anneli Sarvimäki
2006 International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health & Well-Being  
This view can be used as an ontological understanding, which can indirectly point out a strategy for a scientific understanding and conceptualization of human well-being.  ...  The method can be characterized as philosophical, since it dealt with questions on the ontological level.  ...  How can the being of human beings be characterized? . In the light of this characterization, what does ''being well'' mean? .  ...

HCI as an engineering discipline: to be or not to be!?

Matthias Rauterberg
2006 African Journal of Information & Communication Technology

"I always feel it must be great to be a hacker!"

Katharina Kinder-Kurlanda, Katrin Weller
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 ACM conference on Web science - WebSci '14  
It looks at how social scientists describe the need for (interdisciplinary) collaboration and what experiences they have made in working with computer scientists in particular.  ...  While many dimensions were identified concerning the whole research process of social media studies, this paper focuses on the dimension of interdisciplinarity in social media research.  ...  For social scientists this can be an interesting addition to other methods, as it can help to discover the "discrepancies" between "what people say they do" and "what they actually do".  ...

"Messenger" human beings

William Breitbart

Why can information not be defined as being purely epistemic?

Roman Krzanowski
2020 Zagadnienia Filozoficzne w Nauce
