Wed, 10/01/2014

Author(s): 

Oceans of Data Institute, including Ruth Krumhansl, Joseph Ippolito, Joyce Malyn-Smith

In this profile, developed for K-12 educators and policymakers, higher education administrators, and professionals in big-data-enabled fields, the authors identify what someone needs to know and be able to do in order to be successful in the field as a big-data-enabled specialist. In August 2014, EDC convened a panel of big data experts from many fields to produce the profile, and afterwards, asked more than 150 big data professionals to review and comment on it.
