How the Club Works: A Journal Club is a regular gathering where members take turns presenting important new papers on a common theme at successive meetings. The paper or papers to be discussed at each meeting are distributed in advance so that participants have an opportunity to read them before the discussion and come prepared to discuss and ask questions.
LSI Standards Journal Club Meeting
Scheduled for Tuesday, January 26th at 12:10 (MST) by Zoom
Speaker: Brad Biddle
Private standards represent the majority of the governance of most new technologies. Using icebergs as a metaphor, government regulation represents the visible 10% of the iceberg sticking out of the water, but the vast majority of the iceberg is underwater, represented by private standards, which may not have the same visibility as government regulation, but are the major governance tool for many technologies such as software, hardware, telecommunications, biotechnology, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and many others.
Standards journal club will meet every 2nd Tuesday at noon.
