Event description

Description

Following on from our meeting in June, this is the sixth workshop aimed at developing the declaration. This workshop is specifically aimed at those wishing to contribute who work in the private sector.

About the Declaration

In a world awash with data, the ability to make the right decisions regarding the use of data becomes increasingly more complex and difficult.

To this end Open Data Manchester is looking to work with public, private and third sector organisations both from the region and beyond to shape a Declaration for Responsible and Intelligent Data Practice and support Greater Manchester to become a beacon of excellence in this field.

By developing the Declaration for Responsible and Intelligent Data Practice we seek to differentiate the good from bad actors who use data. Its aim is to not only act as a statement of intent along the lines of the ‘first do no harm’ principle found in medical ethics, but also a means for developing and maintaining best practice.

The workshop will explore what a Declaration needs to be and what is needed for implementation. The draft of the Declaration can be found here. With a blog post explaining its rationale here
