A network with Chinese researchers related to the research at Linnaeus University Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications has started to be created.
On 21-23 March 2017, a conference entitled Circumventing the Black Box was arranged at the Institute of Complexity Science and Big Data Technology of Guangxi University in China. One of the speakers at the conference was Koraljka Golub, associate professor at the department of cultural sciences and one of the researchers in the newly established Linnaeus University Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) research group.
At the conference, Koraljka spoke under the heading Overview of Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications at Linnaeus University. The participants were mostly Chinese colleagues who work in different application areas of Big Data, including computer science, e-health, psychology, and business and economics. As a result of the visit and the presentation, a network with Chinese researchers related to DISA has now started to be created. Discussions about possibilities to collaborate in the field of cultural analytics have also been initiated with Danish and Dutch researchers.
