A series of workshops at the University of Cambridge, in October-November 2016, will explore how Big Data is reshaping the worlds of work, production and employment. Information and data literacy are most pertinent here, because employees, managers, business leaders, clients and customers benefit from acquiring an awareness of how Big Data impacts on them. Big Data is a critical part of the information landscape, and is become increasingly (even if subtly) ubiquitous. It represents opportunities, but also challenges, risks and sometimes even dangers; there is a need for understanding and know-how about what it means for individuals in the context of the evolving world of the workplace.
