What can Big Data tell us?

Each transaction, tube journey or tweet now adds to the enormous volume of data we generate in near real time.

These data get collated in vast databases that offer a rich resource for those wanting to better understand human behaviour.

Our exhibition will feature a showcase from each of the Economic & Social Research Council’s (ESRC) Big Data Network centres, featuring our individual and unique research, interactive visualisations and data services that can be utilised by the wider academic community to progress research.

Come and explore big data.
