In this course we debate the impact on society of new advances in Business Intelligence and Big Data. The course is structured in two parts. In the first one we focus on reading and debating on visionary papers that draw new research lines in the field of decisional systems (the so-called next Generation BI systems that are tightly related with Big Data). In the second part we focus on ethics and the impact of such approaches on society.
The spirit of the course is to promote a critical reasoning about the impact of new technological advances that most of the time are only measured in economical terms.
