Big Data & Data Analytics

Designed to serve anyone considering a project that involves complex analysis, and/or a large data set, of special interest to researchers working in the humanities and natural sciences, eager to explore new possibilities.

This short introduction to data management and analysis tools will help you consider your data, and understand which aspects of the Big Data Ecosystem pertain to your research. Data analysis has been around for a long time – but today’s researchers manipulate an unprecedented variety and volume of data from myriad sources, and use advanced computing for high velocity processing.

It’s no surprise that diverse data sources (e.g., GPS coordinates, videos from mobile devices, and massive on-line archives of digitized manuscripts etc.) require strategic approaches to management and analysis. This seminar will help you choose an approach that fits your data.
