"The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the in-house science service of the European Commission and supports policy makers with robust science. With the realisation that in a fast developing globalized world processes are becoming increasingly complex and require innovative, transdisciplinary thinking, the JRC has recently launched its SciArt - Science and Art Programme. As part of the SciArt process, we invite artists to join up with our scientists to discuss, reflect, innovate, and put our research into context, so that we can provide our policy makers with the facts as well as an encompassing analysis – looked at from different angles and perspectives. JRC is inviting participants to the Preparatory Workshop for the next Resonances III on the topic of Big Data. The workshop is held on 20 October in the Leonardo da Vinci Science and Technology Museum in Milan to allow the participants to visit the Resonances II and to brainstorm with us on the angle for the next Resonances cycle on Big Data. With a few presentations to set the scene and mostly interactive breakout groups we want to discuss with artists, scientists and experts the three "W" · What is Big Data, what are its known and unexpected sources? · Where and how is Big Data transforming our society, our lives and even our very self to the better and the worse? · Who are we going to be in the future when Big Data has enabled scientists, engineers, doctors, experts to transform our societies, our work, our economies, our bodies, our agriculture, our security, our thinking? By helping us finding the angle under which the JRC, as DG of the European Commission, should address the topic of Big Data,"
