Integrative big and thick data approaches for development
28 April, 2021 at 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM BST
Big data, which is large datasets generated from digital devices and sensors (e.g. social media, mobile data and remote sensing data) are creating new possibilities to transform development research and policy. However, such data are usually decontextualized data which decrease the meaning and value that can be extracted from it.
More traditional thick data collected through qualitative and ethnographic methods could rescue big data from this context-loss as they are better able to explain the why and how of what is happening. This session will focus on approaches that can be used to mix analytical insights from both big and thick data to develop a better understanding of development challenges and solutions.
Our Social Systems Lead at Pulse Lab Jakarta will share how we integrate big data and thick data approaches to better understand development challenges and design inclusive solutions.
