This year’s theme was Big Data and the conference streamed live for 12 hours on April 30th, 2015. The benefits and challenges presented by working with Big Data sets continue to push the parameters of what constitutes meaningful and ethical research. KIAS helped bring together a conversation on Big Data and its impact on research and culture from universities around the world: 49 panelists from 12 countries across 5 continents participated, including speakers from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Nigeria, and the United States. Previous years’ talks focused on Privacy and Surveillance (2014) and Technology and Culture (2013).
