A space to explore, share and shape the issues facing social and behavioral scientists
Duncan Shaw is a lecturer in information systems at University of Nottingham. He teaches modules about using technology in business to mangers, MBAs, MScs and undergraduates. In his teaching and consultancy work he regularly helps companies to deal with the complex issues and opportunities that are generated by the latest business technologies. Outside of the university Shaw blogs about how to create value from data using Big Data analytics at www.duncanrshaw.co.uk.
Big data is ultimately a big boon for both researchers and the public. But without some reasonable and quick regulation, argues Duncan Shaw, scandals arising from its misuse could turn the public’s stomach.
