Future Directions in SFI Science:  Potential Ideas

May 3-5, 2012, Santa Fe, NM

In 2012, the annual SFI Science Board meeting will focus on building a vision of possible directions that SFI research might take in coming years. Talks and discussions will consider both areas of study that SFI scientists are not currently engaged in, as well as new cutting-edge  directions in research areas that are already part of the SFI scientific portfolio.

Oct. 31, 2013 - Nov. 2, 2013

Venue: The Bishop's Lodge, Santa Fe, NM

Summary: One can hardly read a newspaper, listen to a news broadcast, or open a web page without encountering the words "Big Data", often in gushing terms, and often accompanied by extreme claims. This symposium will explore the promise and the limitations of "Big Data" in science, technology, business, politics, and government. In particular, we will examine the importance of big data in light of the questions being asked and the theoretical context in which big data are analyzed and interpreted.
