Event description

Description

An ODI Members Meetup is a casual event where attendees can listen to interesting lightning talks delivered by a panel of passionate people from diverse industries. Followed by a Q&A and then chit-chat over refreshments.

Trust can take a lifetime to build but only seconds to break and nowhere is that more true than with personal data. Organisations of all shapes and sizes are starting to collect more data so that they can improve services or create more tailored experiences and products. In some cases, data collection and sharing can be life-enhancing or life-saving.

Hear from a range of organisations who are exploring how to be trustworthy with data and how this can impact their customers and wider society.

Speakers

  • Rob McKendrick, Head of Data, the Co-op. Rob will talk about the Co-op’s journey so far with embedding data ethics, including zoo animals, black tie dinners and the ODI

  • Miranda Marcus, R&D Programme Manager, the ODI. Miranda will speak about the work that has been done by the ODI to demystifying questions around data ethics and introducing some practical tools and learning resources devised to help individuals and organisations make more ethical decisions

  • David Wright, Founder and Director of Trilateral Research. David has conducted pioneering work in data protection and data ethics, working with a range of clients in both public and private sector

  • Dominic Humphrey, Architect and policy data scientist, Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London. Educating through doing, why we don't default to the defaults. Colouring London is a citizen science platform that collates information on buildings in London. It gave us the opportunity to make people think about data and question why certain sites engage in bulk data capture of non-essential items. One of our goals is to make visible the types of data held on buildings and by making this open, address the asymmetry of information that exists between individuals and private companies with access to products that collate open data for commercial gain
