National Science Foundation, US

Biography:

William Sims Bainbridge earned his doctorate from Harvard University. He is the author of 10 books, 4 textbook-software packages, and about 150 shorter publications in information science, social science of technology, and the sociology of culture. His software employed innovative techniques to teach theory and methodology: Experiments in Psychology, Sociology Laboratory, Survey Research, and Social Research Methods and Statistics. Most recently, he co-edited Converging Technologies to Improve Human Performance, which explores the combination of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, and cognitive science (National Science Foundation, 2002; www.wtec.org/ConvergingTechnologies/). He has represented the social and behavioral sciences on five advanced technology initiatives: High Performance Computing and Communications, Knowledge and Distributed Intelligence, Digital Libraries, Information Technology Research, and Nanotechnology. Currently, he is deputy director of the Division of Information and Intelligent Systems of the National Science Foundation, after having directed the division’s Human Computer Interaction, Universal Access, and Knowledge and Cognitive Systems programs.
