The “International Society for the Study of Information“, or IS4SI for short, summit of 2021 has begun. Our team will be presenting at the conference over the next week, going over some of our peer review papers for this year. For those unable to attend the conference it will be recorded, and those recordings will be published following the conclusion of the conference.

We can promise all of the excitement that the peer review process has to offer, though I suspect our efforts slated for the weeks following it may have a broader appeal. This will be the first large conference we’ve attended since we began releasing information on Uplift to the general public around the start of this year, so an interesting contrast may be drawn.

Among our scheduled presentations will be:

There is always more to discuss, and no doubt many of these topics will continue to live and evolve on our Discord server following the conference.
