Challenges for Big Data in our Society: Statistical Analysis of Large Scale, High Dimensional Data for Socio-Economic Problems

Program Theme

In the summer of 2014, we will commence the “Challenges of Big Data in our Society” program series. In the first program, we will discuss the development of tools for analyzing socioeconomic–specific large scale, high dimensional data. Furthermore, we explore how these analyses can be applied to service innovation and the solution of contemporary social and economic problems. This approach will be distinguished by the interdisciplinary fusion of data science, economics and management.
