Big Data is everywhere, no matter what you do - from humanities to natural sciences, from social sciences to engineering and 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.

About Us

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas.
