Big Data and Disability, Part 1

Blog

This is the first in a series of blog posts on our ongoing work exploring the applications and implications of Big Data and disability. This serves as an initial scoping of how Big Data can contribute to various research areas related to disability. This will form the basis of a White Paper (forthcoming) exploring the ability of the Big Data ecosystem to monitor and understand the state of research about persons with disabilities and their environments.
