NYT Essay by LEON WIESELTIER on culture and the misguided use of big data

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby featherhttp://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/18/books/review/among-the-disrupted.html An excerpt from this essay: "Meanwhile the discussion of culture is being steadily absorbed into the discussion of business. There are “metrics” for phenomena that cannot be metrically measured. Numerical values are assigned to things that cannot be captured by numbers. Economic concepts go rampaging through noneconomic realms: Economists are our experts on happiness! Where wisdom once was, quantification will now be. Quantification is the most overwhelming influence upon the contemporary American understanding of, well, everything. It is enabled by the idolatry of data, which has itself been enabled by the almost unimaginable data-generating capabilities of the new technology." ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Leaders of several college music units will be gathering in Dallas to address the "quantification of culture and creativity" (my words) this month: Many college and university-level music units, as well as units in the other arts, have been challenged and even damaged by the demands made from central administrations and external forces for data-based assessments and comparisons. The purpose of the Summit is to develop an approach alternative to such sources as Academic Analytics, which does not purport to evaluate performing arts, even though they provide analyses of non-performance, non-creative aspects of arts units. The Summit will lay the groundwork for providing valid bases of evaluation that can be nationally benchmarked. http://www.music.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2096:cms-summit-overview-shaping-institutional-expectations-for-national-benchmarking-of-faculty-and-music-unit-accomplishments&catid=185&Itemid=1765
