Catherine Blake organizes Sociotechnical Data Analytics workshop for iConference 2013
CIRSS Associate Director Catherine Blake, along with Jeffery Stanton of Syracuse University, and Joshua Blumenstock of the University of Washington have organized a workshop on Sociotechnical Data Analytics to be delivered at iConference 2013.
Sociotechnical Data Analytics (SODA) emphasizes social (economic, ethical, policy, and political) and technical (databases, social networking, data mining, and text mining) aspects of data analytics that are required to fully realize the potential of the Fourth Paradigm of science.
The workshop will provide a forum for iSchool faculty who are developing programs in data analytics, eScience, eResearch, big data, and cyberinfrastructure to develop best practices with respect to preparing students to fill the workforce needed for managers and analysts to analyze big data and make decisions based on their findings.
The iConference is an annual gathering of scholars and researchers concerned with critical information issues in contemporary society. iConference participants advance the boundaries of information studies, explore core concepts and ideas, and create new technological and conceptual configurations—all situated in interdisciplinary discourses.
