Workshop: Intelligent Decision Making in Big Data Systems

Business is decision-making in complex situations. Big Data systems present complex decision making in many different domains from financial, security, medical as well as many others.

In any complex system decisions shouldn’t be made just by one dimensional views of data. This is especially true for big data systems that have end user interactions.

This workshop is a hands-on tutorial using Justify, a sophisticated intelligent on-line deliberation tool, created at MIT, that helps organize arguments and provides automatic summarization at all levels. You’ll learn new skills for making better decisions, and how to use online tools to improve decision-making.

Please bring your laptop. Please also bring an example of a financial / decision problem that we can discuss in the group.

Hosted by:
Elizabeth Rosenzweig, Bentley University, User Experience Center
Chrisopher Fry, Henry Lieberman, MIT Media Lab

    Where did the great pizza come from ?! :-)

    Two reflections as feedback:

    @ Justify: I am sure we only scratched the surface of what the software is capable to do. I also liked very much the philosophical connotation of the presenters when asking what kind of analysis would at all be accepted by users. No need for complicated models when you cannot communicate / use their results. That - to me - is an interesting road to think further about, notably in the context of big data, where calculation time is critical. @ Interface: Please read the book by Steve Krug 'Don't make me think". Baseline: the user should always be master of the level of detail he/she is confronted with, however complicated the application -> see

    Thanks again for this very enjoyable event!

    There was no Big Data element in the Justify application nor did the application interfaced with Big Data Systems....misleading title.
