'There are some problems that we are not good at solving, such as climate change, energy, water, nutrition, health, disease control - issues which are multicultural, require negotiation, and involve large amounts of emotion and polarization. These problems can’t be solved by our existing tools and disciplines. They need a new multidisciplinary approach.  Web Science must be about the ability to collaborate at a meta-layer,’ he said, ‘beyond disciplines, rather than to augment and increase the science in a single discipline.'

His talk "The promise, perils and pitfalls of data science in industry, and how web science can help” will cover a brief history of what’s been happening in the workplace in this context, where it came from and where it’s going. He will also discuss the cultural challenges that manifest themselves in the current environment and why, the problems that can be encountered and the role that Web Science could play.
