Big Data and Social Media – English

More and more of our culture and social interactions are translated into machine-readable data. The massive quantities of rich social, cultural, economic, political and historical data offer practisioners the opportunity to study culture and social interactions through big Data and new data analytics or to create new services. Every minute you generate data. Your phone makes contact with Wi-Fi and you have already left a trace where you are. You see a post or follow someone on Snapchat, and you have left a trail.

This minor focuses on the impact of (big) data on business and society and investigates the impact of data on design: how can you create a new data-driven service? And how do you design them in such a way that you also deal with privacy issues? How can we use data to measure user engagement?
