It would be nice if all of the data which sociologists require could be enumerated because then we could run them through IBM machines and draw charts as the economists do.
However, not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted
– William Cameron, Informal Sociology (1963)
About the project
COHUBICOL (Counting as a Human Being in the Era of Computational Law) will investigate how the prominence of counting and computation transforms many of the assumptions, operations and outcomes of the law.
A plea to augment CS curricula
Hildebrandt’s new article in the Communications of the ACM is core to the message of COHUBICOL and the goal of developing a new hermeneutics that can bridge law and CS.
