Big Data in the Public Sector

This VIP will explore the connection between ethics and Big Data in public sector decision making. Participants will engage with faculty and graduate students from the School of Public Service in weekly reviews and discussion based on assigned readings and participation on Big Data research efforts, scholarship design and implementation, and through engagement with Computer Science and Engineering faculty. Students will gain experience working in an interdisciplinary environment on a critical and dynamic problem within the Big Data policy domain. Students will produce a literature review and a white paper summarizing their findings and a reflection paper on their research project experience.
