Special Session 1:

The Special Session on Data Marketing as Cross-disciplinary Data Exchange and Collaboration (CDEC2020)

December 10-13, 2020 Atlanta, GA, USA

The recent social movement of big data and artificial intelligence has resulted in a tremendous increase in the importance of data. In view of these expectations, there are the externalizations of interdisciplinary issues. Many papers about data utilization have been published, and several approaches for analyzing data have been shared widely. However, there are only a limited number of studies on the process of cross-disciplinary data exchange and collaboration and its ecosystem. Since this process encompasses various activities of different stakeholders, it is difficult to evaluate the patterns or processes quantitatively. Moreover, in the data market, there are not only big data but also small data necessary for decision making. It is essential to discuss the dynamics of such a network of heterogeneous data in different fields.

To address these gaps, we propose to hold a special session to discuss the processes and interactions among data, humans, and society –Data Marketing as Cross-disciplinary Data Exchange and Collaboration (CDEC). The topics taken up at CDEC will involve practical issues such as the analytical tasks performed using data, solutions for challenging social issues, and cross-disciplinary data collaboration and its process. Our special session will target not only cleanly formatted homogenous data, but also heterogeneous data that affect human behaviors, thoughts, and intentions across different domains. We will also focus on a discussion to obtain tacit knowledge of artificial intelligence and data mining by analysis and synthesis. In addition to these research fields, we will attempt to take a cognitive approach toward observing the processes of knowledge discovery and data exchange. It is expected that conflicts and inconsistencies may arise owing to differences in opinion when stakeholders from different knowledge domains have discussions on data-driven decision making. We believe that this special session focusing on the process of cross-disciplinary data exchange and collaboration will have great significance, not only on academia, but also on the society as a whole.

We call for anyone interested in the following topics related to CDEC.
