SoBigData++: European Integrated Infrastructure for Social Mining and Big Data Analytics

In 2015, the EU-funded SoBigData project set out to create a research infrastructure delivering an integrated ecosystem for advanced applications of social data mining and Big Data analytics. To further study the complexity of the use of social mining and Big Data analytics, the EU-funded SoBigData-PlusPlus project will now develop a distributed, Europe-wide, multidisciplinary research infrastructure. This will be coupled with the consolidation of a cross-disciplinary European research community. The project will strengthen infrastructure tools and services by establishing an open platform for the design and performance of large-scale social mining experiments. The project will deliver specific tools approaching ethics with value-sensitive design integrating values for privacy protection, transparency, and pluralism.
