The amount of data that is produced is growing exponentially. By now, Big Data is a buzz word in many fields and disciplines. Widely discussed not only in industry and academia, as well in the public sector. But what is Big Data? And are we witnessing a shift: Is there a »Big Data moment«? Andrew Prescott is a trained medieval historian and professor of Digital Humanities. In this interview we talk about the history of Big Data and some theoretical and methodical consequences for the Arts and Humanities.

 

 
Disclaimer: I took this interview at the conference »Big Data in a Transdisciplinary Perspective«. The Volkswagenstiftung invited me to participate as a »Science Reporter«.
