  1. What is data? Is there a science of data? Our local expert, Nik Richers: ??
    “On June 22-23 2017, a two-day interdisciplinary conference at the University of Kent brought together philosophers and social scientists to explore methodological implications of using big data for causal discovery in the social sciences.” Source.


  2. “Seth Stephens-Davidowitz studies publicly available, anonymous Google Search data. His work reveals prejudices and sheds light on aspects of demography that are hard to tackle with surveys. It’s a long, yet captivating read and a great example data story telling that shows how insightful descriptive data analysis can be. It’s also deeply infuriating because, among other things, his work implies that open racism and biases against girls are widespread.”
