Using Data for Social and Business Impact

Spears School of Business recognizes that business schools are change makers for students, businesses and society. Data and statistics are important when it comes to establishing successful businesses. Researchers within Spears Business are using big data and data analytics to not only address business challenges, but to put that research to use for the greater good. During this symposium, Spears Business faculty will present on how they are using digital research to create impact on business and society.  Using social media sites and online web advertising, researchers are gathering data tha can shape everything from foodservice operations to human trafficking patterns. The new Spears Center for Social and Business Impact is intentionally focusing on how more of this research can be done to have a positive impact on Oklahoma and the surrounding region.

Wednesday, January 26th | Real World Open Science 

Real World Open Science

Researchers are being encouraged to make their data open and their research processes transparent. Funding agencies expect PI’s to make data available in public repositories where possible in order to advance scientific processes more quickly and ensure that funded research is well used.  There is evidence that advances in knowledge about COVID-19 treatment were accelerated by open sharing of data and fast access to preprints. But adoption of open science/research practices is not universally applauded.  What concerns and issues stand in the way of rapid progress towards truly open science? This symposium will discuss advantages of open science and hold a panel discussion about the ways that open science creates both benefits and challenges for researchers.
