Talking about Big Data Research Processes

A card-swiping computer game to explore the complexities of Big Data research. 

Premise of the game:

  • You are the researcher in charge of a Big Data project.
  • You need to keep Knowledge, Ethics, Money and People in balance (the symbols at the top of game screen)
  • Make decisions by swiping each card (scenario) left or right (yes or no), but be warned, every decision has consequences.
  • Have you got what it takes to keep the world of big data in balance?
  • Tip: Gently the tip the card to read the possible answers

The game is still in development, but we hope to upgrade the graphics to look more like this 'Mayor' version soon: https://youtu.be/uf7Ke53iv2s
