Big Data

Each Academic year, the Transdisciplinary Studies Program at CGU hosts yearlong, themed research initiatives addressing transdisciplinary topics. For the 2015 – 2016 academic year, the Transdisciplinary Studies Program’s initiative centered on Big Data.

Big Data is everywhere. But can Big Data research and practice be harnessed to address pressing social conditions? in 2015, to kick off its yearlong Big Data Initiative, Claremont Graduate University’s Transdisciplinary Studies Program held a unique all-day university conference featuring scientists and humanists, researchers and practitioners, faculty and students, from across the schools and disciplines at CGU and beyond to discuss the implications of big data in society.
