Convened by University of Potsdam & HSE University (Moscow and Saint Petersburg)
Even though rapidly progressing digitalization turns almost any sphere of modern life into an asset of Big Data, discussions about the uses, reuses, and abuses of data largely remain within the clearly confined frameworks of individual disciplines and institutions. The summer school challenges this persistent compartmentalization through a distinct cross-disciplinary approach.
In order to facilitate a dialogue between the branches of data science, the summer school brings together teachers and students from the Humanities, Social Sciences, Engineering and Natural Sciences to discuss the potential as well as the problems of digital technological change from an international and interdisciplinary perspective.
We welcome up to 30 participants (advanced Bachelor and Master students) from the above-mentioned fields of knowledge, who are interested in investigating the transformations of a digitized world, drawing upon insights from an integrated interdisciplinary perspective, combining their specific interests and knowledge about Big Data within a broader investigation on other fields of digitalization.
