Here we will consider the degree to which this convening implicates translational issues. We will address linguistic/symbolic/representational confrontations between computational narratives and common parlance; between data complexities buried in quantitative reductions and peer-reviewed studies re-presented as popularized sound- bites; between knowledge production as “free” and “R&D” as productivity-oriented salesmanship; between private profit-motivated outcome and outright state-sponsored propaganda.
