How Will Big Data Affect Evolution of Social Science?

No Comments

Social scientists have, overall, been slower to tap into the ever-increasing flow of “big data” than their peers in the physical and medical sciences.

Advanced Visualisation Group

There is well – forgotten way of visualization of Big Data usually used by applied mathematicians in natural sciences. In comparison with popular Visual Story Telling,this kind of  mathematical visualization assumes an existence of some Platonic mathematical structures and objects behind Data. Hence,we always can reduce Data to equation, theorem and thus to deduce real prediction of […]
