Description


Professor Mandy Chessell presents:

Now that data is ubiquitous, how do we make it useful?

Honorary Graduate Lecture

Part of the University of Brighton’s College of Life, Health and Physical Sciences – Distinguished Lecture Series.

As digital technology sweeps through every aspect of our lives, data has become ubiquitous. The problem is that much of this data is useless because it no longer has enough context with it for people, processes and analytics to understand what it means.

Professor Mandy Chessel, examines current data management practices and tools to explain why data loses its context. She proposes an alternative and open approach that will expand our ability to use data to its full extent. She also looks at the issue of providing appropriate protection and governance to valuable intellectual property and sensitive data.
