Big Data is everywhere, no matter what you do – from humanities to
natural sciences, from social sciences to engineering to medicine. Yet,
data on its own, no matter how “Big”, is of little use. Distilling Big Data
into actionable, useful information requires a range of tools from
mathematics, statistics and computer science, which might appear
intimidating when approached for the first time.
 
In an afternoon of talks, we will introduce the key concepts and ideas which
underlie modern analysis of large and complex data sets, in a maths-free
manner.
 
To start the Big Data conversation, we need a shared
vocabulary!
