MM4 – Big Data, Small Data and the Post-truth Era

Meeting of the Minds 4 – Big Data, Small Data and The Post-Truth Era 

Big data and modern computational capabilities have led to unprecedented predictive power. But they have also led to the rise of disinformation and a global epistemic crisis.

In MM4, Dr. Barb Adams, Dialectic’s Director of Research, will lead us in a discussion of the use of small data – that is, the use of targeted qualitative research methods to understand people, their values, and their motivations – as a partial antidote to these problems.

MM4 takes place Friday Nov. 9, 2018, 7-10 p.m.

Meeting of the Minds is a relaxed, informal gathering of smart and creative people to discuss topics from research, design, and technology.
