Apologies for cross-posting.

Below is the abstract of the insightful talk that Prof Bebo White, Departmental Associate (Emeritus) at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Web pioneer in the US, will be delivering as WWW13 MABSDA (http://sentic.net/mabsda) keynote speech. Don't miss it!

THE WEB AS A LABORATORY Insights from Web Science and Big Data Analysis have led many researchers to the conclusion that the Web not only represents an almost unlimited data store but also a remarkable multi-disciplinary laboratory environment. A new challenge is how to best leverage the potential of this experimental space. What are the procedures for defining, implementing and evaluating “Web-scale” experiments? What are acceptable measures of robustness and repeatability? What are the opportunities for experimental collaboration? What disciplines are likely to benefit from this new research model? This talk will likely have more questions than answers, but should provide fertile ground for ongoing discussion.
