Rolling in the Deep Analytics: Big Data Comes to Scholarly Communication

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is big data? What can we learn by mining the deep connections embedded within scholarly information? How can big data tools provide intelligent analysis in a manner that materially impacts researchers, librarians, and publishers? What type of infrastructure development is required? This session will delve into these questions and explore what a number of innovative organizations are doing today to make sense of global research at a firehose scale. Specific topics to be covered include the extraction of entities and connections from across the corpus of scholarly articles; the development of meaningful "at scale" analysis; how vast quantities of information can be distilled into services useful for a range of stakeholders; and what libraries can do to support big data projects originating on campus.
