Marthe's current research project focuses on Big Data and Artificial Intelligence in the healthcare sector. Big Data raise high expectations in the healthcare sector. It is thought that it will offer immense opportunities and will radically change the way care is provided and research is being conducted. As a result, Big Data would lead to more personalized, efficient and effective medical care. However, critics emphasize that the developments are being exaggerated and that, for example, security and governance issues should first be solved.
Her PhD research will position itself between the utopian expectations and the criticisms that surround Big Data, by doing in-depth empirical research into the practices of Big Data. She works from the perspective of Science and Technology Studies (STS) and the goal is to ethnographically explore what Big Data is and what role it can have in healthcare. She specifically focuses on the epistemological claims of Big Data.
Currently, Marthe is also a part of the EU-funded Big Medilytics project and involved in an international comparison of formal and informal rules for Big Data in various European Countries.
