Big Data Methods for Social Science and Policy

This interdisciplinary Workshop Big Data Methods for Social Science and Policy will bring together Cambridge research expertise in areas such as quantitative sociology, biostatistics, computing, astronomy, mathematics, psychology, law and history and philosophy of science in order to explore what methodological insight can be offered from research advances in these disciplines.

The meeting will feature a series of short talks, in-depth discussions and networking opportunities, allowing the opportunity to develop new connections and ideas for the application of big data to solve big questions in social science, as well as the societal, political and ethical implications of these new methods.

Mihály Fazekas from DIGIWHIST will present a paper: Exploring government administrative data to hold governments accountable in the Big Data Era
