Big data and development in India

I recently wrote a short article on the blog of the Sheffield Institute of International Development (SIID). It outline some of the pilot work I’m currently involved with on Big Data and Development

…We’re seeing a growth of interest in using more data in development, and notably large and complex “big data” to help solve development problems. Indeed, we can say that the infrastructures now being built to support big data are likely to become central to how we make development decisions in the future.

How will such data infrastructures shape our thinking about development over the next decade? What types of limitations and biases might they embed? How should they best be designed and implemented? It is these questions that we looked to explore in a recent project exploring big data use in India.
