BDH Themes

BIGDataHUB has three main cross-disciplinary spokes in our hub.

1) The interaction of big data with people, including behavioral change and decision-making. Across many sectors, including business, health, education, and policy, organizations have been grappling with how to integrate big data into existing decision-making structures. More significantly, big data is spurring new ways of thinking about the nature of expertise and professional decision-making.

2) Big data and technology. This addresses technical questions across a range of domains: data analysis and modelling; the storage and retrieval of information, particularly salient in distributed data systems and ledger technology; information systems and databases; and cloud computing.

3) Systems and governance, which includes issues of management, strategy, and accounting. Many of these themes are embraced by professions (including accounting, medicine and law).
