Big Data Discussion

Though Big Data is not a new concept to IO psychologists, it has become more important due to the sheer volume of data we collect today in organizations regarding customers, processes, leaders, and employees. You may also hear talk of Data Science, Business Intelligence, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, or similar concepts when doing research on this topic. Though each of these areas have a different purpose, there is some overlap and they all demonstrate the impact technology continues to have on how we conduct research today.
