Questions About Reproducibility in an Age of Big Data
The reproducibility of scientific studies with small sample sizes has always been a concern.
But what about large sample sizes? How do we think about questions of reproducibility in this age of big data?
Diverse fields now draw on gigantic datasets that come from high throughput methods or social media use. Does big data pose unique challenges? What safeguards would foster replication for both big and small data studies? What blindspots are being neglected, making the results or inferences from scientific studies unreliable? This conference tackles these questions from an interdisciplinary vantage point with the aim of improving scientific methodology.
