Mayer-Schönberger and Cukier on Big Data and Law

Professor Dr. Viktor Mayer-Schönberger of the Oxford Internet Institute and Kenneth Neil Cukier of The Economist gave a presentation entitled Big Data — and Its Dark Side, 6 March 2013, at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

The presentation concerned their new book entitled Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think (Houghton Mifflin, 2013).

The presentation includes some examples concerning legal data, including an analysis of topics discussed in proceedings of the British House of Commons, a study of the association between the ideology and citation practices of U.S. Supreme Court Justices, and predictive policing.

One Response to Mayer-Schönberger and Cukier on Big Data and Law

  1. On 17 March 2013 I asked Professor Mayer-Schönberger whether the U.S. Supreme Court citation study had been published. He responded: “Not yet. Hope to have study out with many more insights this summer.” https://twitter.com/Viktor_MS/status/313282282565795840
