Big Data: Philosophy, Emergence, Crowdledge, and Science Education
dos Santos, Renato P.
Themes in Science and Technology Education, v8 n2 p115-127 2015
Big Data already passed out of hype, is now a field that deserves serious academic investigation, and natural scientists should also become familiar with Analytics. On the other hand, there is little empirical evidence that any science taught in school is helping people to lead happier, more prosperous, or more politically well-informed lives. In this work, we seek support in the Philosophy and Constructionism literatures to discuss the realm of the concepts of Big Data and its philosophy, the notions of "emergence" and "crowdledge", and how we see "learning-with-Big-Data" as a promising new way to learn Science.
