Big Data & Complex Knowledge – Observations and recommendations from K-Plex project

During 15 months, the Knowledge Complexity (or KPLEX) project has worked to pinpoint areas where different research communities’ understanding of what the creation of knowledge is and should diverge, and, from this unique perspective, propose where further work can and should be done. This report collects the results of this work, a set of observations and recommendations for possible development avenues for a future of big data research that is socially aware and informed, but which also harnesses opportunities to explore new pathways to technical innovations.
