    • Informaticsat Northern Kentucky University
      Douglas Perry, Ph.D.
      Dean
      College of Informatics
    • Northern Kentucky University
    • What Is Informatics?
      Development of theories and technologies of computation, information, and communication
    • What Is Informatics?
      Development of theories and technologies of computation, information, and communication
      Computation:
      Computer and software engineering
      Data generation and acquisition
      Artificial intelligence
      Human-computer interaction
      Simulation and virtualization
    • What Is Informatics?
      Development of theories and technologies of computation, information, and communication
      Information:
      Properties
      Processing
      Storage
      Retrieval
      Analysis
    • What Is Informatics?
      Development of theories and technologies of computation, information, and communication
      Communication:
      Information exchange
      Content creation
      Knowledge construction
      Digital space
      Social impact
    • What Is Informatics?
      Study of digital dystopias
      Cybercrime
      Information overload
      Frustration
      Loss of privacy
      Isolation

    • What Is Informatics?
      Developing and deploying applications of digital technology to advance:
      Arts
      Sciences
      Professions
      Business
    • Examples of Informatics
      Health care -> health informatics
      Filmmaking -> 3-D animation
      Design -> virtualization
      Performing arts -> digital inflection
      Business -> enterprise resource planning
      Art -> interactive media
      Science -> bioinformatics
      Publishing -> eBooks
    • Natural Evolution of Informatics
      Commodification
      Information technology isbecoming off-the-shelf
      Integration
      Data flow
      Data management
      Convergence

      CHALLENGE
    • Old Scientific Paradigm: Reductionism
      Systems are reduced to their component elements
      Experiments are based on preconceived theories
      Results are predicted by a priori hypotheses
      Conclusions are drawn by deductive logic
    • New Scientific Paradigm: Structuralism
      Elements are discovered and synthesized into relational systems
      Data can be either experimental or empirical
      Theories are constructed a posteriori based on results
      Conclusions are drawn by inductive logic
