Big data requires good navigators

More and more research is based on ‘big data’, not only in engineering, medicine and science, but also increasingly in the humanities and social sciences.
These huge quantities of data offer fantastic opportunities, as well as major challenges. How does Lund University deal with these? Do researchers receive the support they need? Are we equipping students to meet the digital revolution?
This month and next month, LUM is exploring some of the research and education that involves big data. We highlight examples and discuss the University’s capacity and the problems presented by e-science.
