Big Question: Big Data to Knowledge Workshop

University of Chicago Big Questions

Principal Investigator: Jeanne Marsh, School of Social Service Administration

Funding Type: Workshop

Focus Area: Complexity

Big Idea: The Workshop proposed here focuses on complexity, specifically on the use of advanced computational analytics to generate insights from complex data about the biological, behavioral and social processes associated with the utilization and outcome of health services.  Data science and big data analytics are needed to develop computational tools that can be applied to large, complex health data in order to address emerging scientific questions in health policy and services. The goals of the workshop are to (1) build on ongoing data science projects in the University, and (2) provide a venue and stimulus for new big data collaborations in health policy and services research.
