Questions of data protection, privacy, surveillance, as well as the positive aspects of data sharing and integration will be discussed. New technologies have also led to a massive increase in the amount of data being produced by public bodies. This data is valuable and can be used to transform the way services are planned, delivered and managed. Open Data is about making data held by public bodies available and easily accessible online for reuse, redistribution and analysis. The idea of ‘Algorithmic Government’ that this promises, will be assessed and some of the challenging issues will be reviewed.
The Chatham House Rule will apply to all the conversations in this series.
Two bursaries of €50.00 each are available to post-graduate students. To make an application for a bursary contact Andrew Power at firstname.lastname@example.org Include a CV and up to 500 words outlining your reasons for wishing to attend the conversation, and how your attendance would assist with your studies.
