The Web Science course 2016-17 focuses on the study of large-scale socio-technical systems associated with the World Wide Web. It considers the relationship between people and technology, the ways that society and technology complement one another and the way they impact on broader society. These analyses are inherently associated with Big Data management issues.
The course is given in Como Campus of Politecnico di Milano by Marco Brambilla and Emanuele Della Valle.
