The workshop encourages discussion and debate in order to understand how big data is already influencing the fields of security, politics and education and how those domains can benefit from or deal with the information big data provides.
The focus of the workshop lies on the teamwork process, inter alia, the advantages and challenges of virtual collaboration. The participants will be confronted with the difficulties of virtual and intercultural team work as well as project management tasks. During the workshop, experts are supposed to establish an action plan on how to deal with huge quantitative data sources and how to use them for a better qualitative analysis. The results of the workshop will then be provided to the participants.
All in all, we aim to create a forum during which participants benefit from each other’s’ insights into the current developments of big data and its potential benefits and risks.
