SUNY Oneonta faculty and staff involved in the university’s Big Data Project (www.oneonta.edu/bigdata) gather for a portrait in the IRC television studio, Jan. 30, 2014. The team of sociologists, political scientists, philosophers and information technologists has begun integrating the study of “big data”—the vast collection of information generated by our daily online activities—across the social science disciplines. <br />
 <br />
As social media data has become a viable way to study people’s attitudes and beliefs, there is an emerging need for data scientists who can curate this data. Using tools such as IBM’s Many Eyes, Trackur, ContentSeer and Topsy, Oneonta students are learning the mechanics of processing and analyzing qualitative data. In classroom discussions, they’re examining broader social issues related to morality, privacy, public opinion and popular culture.<br />
<br />
The project is funded by two SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grants, with additional support from IBM, Microsoft, Gnip and RapidMiner, and collaboration with Penn State and the University of Buffalo.<br />
<br />
The following team members are shown in these photos: professors<br />
Greg Fulkerson (Sociology), Brett Heindl (Political Science), Brian Lowe (Sociology), Bill Wilkerson (Political Science) and Harry Pence (Chemistry, emeritus); Jim Greenberg, Diana Moseman and Tim Ploss of the Teaching, Learning and Technology Center; and undergraduate student Nicholas Perugini.<br />
