Katy Börner is the Founding Director of the Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center (CNS) (http://cns.iu.edu) at Indiana University. The CNS Center develops plug-and-play macroscope tools and services that convert data into insight and are used by more than 100,000 students, researchers, and practitioners around the globe to answer when (temporal), where (geospatial), what (topical), and with whom (network analysis) questions. She is a curator of the "Places & Spaces: Mapping Science" exhibit (scimaps.org) that demonstrates the power of maps for tracking and communicating human activity and scientific progress on a global scale. Her books "Atlas of Science: Visualizing What We Know" (2010), "Modeling Science Dynamics" (2012), "VIVO: A Semantic Approach to Scholarly Networking and Discovery" (2012), and the new Information Visualization MOOC aim to empower anyone to make sense of small and big data. Börner is the Victor H. Yngve Professor of Information Science at the IU School of Library and Information Science, Adjunct Professor at the School of Informatics and Computing, Adjunct Professor at the Department of Statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences, and Core Faculty of Cognitive Science. @katycns
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
