‘Cryptic commons’ refers to the common language and understandings across disciplinary boundaries that are necessary to secure the development of future cryptographic tools that are socially, culturally and ethically sound (See Mannov et al 20201). Researchers and developers from engineering, data science and cryptography often work in disciplinary silos where specialized developments can be pursued, and expertise honed. These are valuable fora for cutting-edge research. But this sometimes comes at the cost of insight from other disciplines. If data represents citizens, and data analytics is used to make fundamental decisions about citizens, then securing this data and how it is interpreted is a deeply social endeavor. Engineers, data scientists and cryptographers are however not trained to grasp social insights that are not quantifiable. At the same time, social science and humanities researchers often work far from the sites at which data tools and analytics are developed, and so they lack an understanding of the technical logics and methods within which their colleagues work. This workshop brings together noted researchers interested in the development of cryptography and cyberphysical systems, and their social impacts. We invite scholars from a broad range of disciplines: cryptography, computer science, engineering and the social and human sciences to explore pathways for the collaborations and developments that are necessary for the making of cryptic commons. During the workshop, we will probe what it means to be “stuck in the gap” and how to create “cryptic commons”.
