Wednesday, 22nd April, 2015
Central Edinburgh (Venue TBC)

Prof. Nick Bailey, Associate Director of the Urban Big Data Centre will be speaking on "Using data to identify and tackle society problems."

  • Big Data presents exciting opportunities for policy makers and social researchers interested in understanding and addressing societal problems. But it is policy and social research which need to drive the technology, not the other way round.
  • Big Data currently have Big Gaps, and much of the current opportunities derive from combining these with more traditional data sources, notably from surveys and administrative systems.
