Get Involved with SOBACO
Few organizations understand how to extract insights and value from the recent explosive growth of social media, and the concurrent explosion of “Big Data”. Your organization cane benefit from partnering with SOBACO to address your critical-path and cutting edge questions related to extracting value from social media and big-data. Specifically:
- SOBACO brings together leading researchers from a host of disciplines, ranging from computer science, information systems, sociology, psychology and ethics to marketing, statistics and economics, as well as law and public policy, into a shared research collaborative.
- Our early experience indicates that conducting large-scale real-world network experiments and studies requires a diverse array of skills and resources. These range from deep technical computer science and big-data handling skills as well as new capabilities that have to be created in recruiting global subjects online, refining protocols, protecting subjects’ privacy and using suitable monetary reward structures to induce actions. SOBACO provides a research infrastructure for organizations that don’t have the time or the luxury to create these capabilities on their own.
