What is the impact of Big Data on science, the individual and society as a whole? Does Big Data change Science itself? Some even declare a new era of ‘inductive empiricism’ and ‘the end of theory’. On Wednesday 18 February Prof. Wilco Hazeleger, Director of the Netherlands eScience Center, will take you along in his view on this phenomenon as part of the Open Mind Lab lecture series at Wageningen University.
“Improving our range of tools will eventually result in greater safety for the Netherlands and other countries”
Prof. Henk Dijkstra (Utrecht University)
Last October, state of the art software development company VORtech organized the seminar ‘Taking the lead with Computational Speed’.
