Session Description

In celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the College of Liberal Arts, a panel of CLA faculty will discuss Big Data and the Future of Social Research, moderated by our own Nate Helwig. 

Will the production of “Big Data” lead to major scientific advances in the study of social, economic, political and other facets of the human experience? Will big data help quantify uncertainty in social science research? How does “Big Tech” fit in this vision?

Participants:

Nita Krevans, Classical and Near Eastern Studies

Steven Ruggles, History

Melissa Sellew, Classical and Near Eastern Studies

Eric Shook, Geography, Environment & Society
