The Big Data Future is a conference at Ohio State University 19-21 March 2014 hosted by I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society in the John Glenn School of Public Affairs. It is supported by Battelle, IBM and Elsevier. Some interesting people talking, Harvey Miller from OSU Geography for example who has written a lot about big data and is in the vanguard of the field when it comes to spatial analysis. There is a session on Big Data and Cities and I will be talking there about how our tools in city planning can be informed, enhanced, and even distorted by big data. Here is the link.
