In current thinking a company or government gathers and aggregates (big) data from customers with whom it engages, enabling insights from all their engagements and consequently a much more personal understanding of individual needs, wants and behaviour.Small Data is driven by new technology trends in diverse private data coupled with deep analytics. Small Data will fundamentally disrupt Big Data business models and change the way individuals engage with companies and governments of the future.

Individuals enter a Faustian pact without much thought, exchanging data for access to information they once called their own. In this seminar Professor Durrant-Whyte describes a new way of thinking about data.

Small Data, where individuals own their own data and the rights to access it, is people focussed.

Small Data will fundamentally disrupt Big Data business models and change the way individuals engage with companies and governments of the future.

The treatment of animals in the context of Australian live animal exports has gained much attention recently, particularly as a result of a focus since 2011 by the media and animal advocates on the welfare of animals at destination countries.

However, and despite the deep ethical concerns relating to live animal trade, today animal advocates arguably face a tactical quandary in relation to how to move forward, partly as a result of a strong “backlash” from businesses and governments seeking to secure live animal transport as a continuing export industry (Jones and Davies, 2016).This paper seeks to explore live animal transport from the perspective of value chains within the context of globalising meat production.I will argue that live animal transport is a symptom of a meat industry that is structuring itself across borders, and that in this environment, both “integrated” and “dis-integrated” business models within the industry will create demand for live animal transport.While an increasingly globalised meat industry poses a formidable challenge to animal advocates, I will argue that this context offers a range of different levers for animal advocates, including in recognising the role of both human and non human labour within value chains.This talk is based on research conducted as part of a Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung (WZB) Staff exchange fellowship, supported by the Sydney Democracy Network (SDN).“Big Data” is increasingly synonymous with “Big Brother”.
