Oxford Internet Institute - Events - Big Data: Rewards and Risks for the Social Sciences

Oxford Internet Institute - Events - Big Data: Rewards and Risks for the Social Sciences | FuturICT Events of Interest | Scoop.it
Thursday 21 - Friday 22 March 2013: This workshop is targeted at those who are working at the coal face of big data in the social sciences.

 

Abstract

The Oxford Internet Institute will be holding a 2-day workshop for social scientists who are grappling with the challenges of big data. The workshop is targeted at those who are working at the coal face of big data in the social sciences: those who are doing research using large-scale data and are interested in what this means for the future of the social sciences.

 

Why is the workshop being held?

We are hoping that this workshop will serve several purposes: to connect researchers facing similar challenges and learn from each other, to inspire new collaborations in this fast-moving area, to move beyond the hype and develop high-powered research agendas and good practices, and to inform a research project that we have on this topic (see Accessing and Using Big Data to Advance Social Science Knowledge project)."

MSI – Reinventing Society in the Wake of Big Data | FuturICT Events of Interest | Scoop.it

"Reinventing Society in the Wake of Big Data

 

“We are at a phase transition from the reasoning from the Enlightenment to a fine-grained understanding of individual interactions and permissioning of those data,” says Alex “Sandy” Pentland. Director of MIT’s Human Dynamics Laboratory, Pentland is a pioneer in big data, computational social science, mobile and health systems, and technology for developing countries. He will speak at MSI’s Dec. 4-5 “Big Data” conference at MIT."
