Abstract or Description

The Social Framework proposes an agenda that understands how social composition and social effects are related and proposes that giving Big Data a ‘social intelligence’ requires acting with an ethic of care. It is the product of an ESRC funded project, Socialising Big Data, led by Evelyn Ruppert (2013-14). Accompanying documents that are available are a working paper, 'Socialising Big Data: from concept to practice' and 'Background: A Social Framework for Big Data.'
