Description/Abstract: How is technology changing epistemology - namely what is knowable and how we go about knowing - particularly in the social sciences? How is the nature of evidence and sense-making changing in the information age?

This essay looks at some of the methodological transformations happening in industrial sectors and the natural sciences, and imagines how some of these techniques might be applied to empirical social science.
