Four international organisations held meeting on big data today. The meeting, which took place in London, sought to find solutions to overcoming challenges facing big data. Among these are the need to ensure that the public “engages” research data.
SciDev.Net, an online science publication; the International Development Research Centre, a Canadian funder; the British Council and UKCDS, a group of UK government departments and funders involved in international development, organised the meeting.
