Description of ActivityOrganiser of the FHSS Technology in Research Workshop:
Use of Technology in Research: this might include the integration of AI-based technologies to assess the utility of security systems; the use of virtual reality to examine complex social scientific concepts; digital research methods (e.g., API research, OSINT, netnographies etc.); crowdsourcing approaches in emergency settings; or individual/organisational/educational/ applications of technology (e.g., what is the human component in integrating various technology and IT in research).
Technology and Analysis: this might include the use of computational modelling to understand social networks and structures; technology intelligence; forecasting; road-mapping; assessment; or future foresight. This might also include the use of relevant software for employing analysis and various analytical approaches to understanding the use of technology.
Efficacy of Technology in Research: this might include discussions around the efficacy of technology – such as: how can technology be effectively integrated into research practice to help enhance our understanding of complex social phenomenon?; how can ML/AI aid in research?; or what are the barriers of implementing technological elements within research approaches and considerations?
Technology, Research and Ethics: this might include discussion pieces around the ethical challenges of integrating technology into research practices (e.g., applying bio-ethical principles toward technology and research practices); or digital online research methods and ethics.
Technology Futures: this might include discussions around emerging technologies and how they can aid various practices and discipline (e.g., horizon scanning); how technology will help enhance research practices in the future; or discussion around what we need to change in order to improve research practices.
