Ethics of Big Data Research Group launched

last modified Aug 11, 2015 10:28 AM
A new interdisciplinary research group at CRASSH will investigate the Ethics of Big Data during the coming academic year.

Convened by researchers from the DH Network, Cambridge Big Data, the Institute of Public Health, the Cambridge Computer Lab and the department of Politics and International Studies, the group 's aim is to explore the ethical ramifications of the growth of Big Data and to develop concrete resources for scholars conducting big data research.  In addition, the Research Group intends to contribute to our understanding of research ethics more broadly in terms of their relationship to rapidly evolving research practices and in terms of how they translate across disciplines.

Read more about the group's aims and details of the Michaelmas Term programme on the CRASSH website here.

We are a network of researchers at the University of Cambridge who are interested in how the use of digital tools is transforming scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. This transformation spans both the content and practice of humanities research, as the diffusion of digital technologies opens up new fields of study and generates research questions which breach traditional disciplinary boundaries.
