Innovation & Data4Good – are we on the verge of a new era of data-driven innovation?
With the power of data seen by everyone during the pandemic and UK data regulations changing the public sector are at a crossroads in their use of data for the public good.
While the government has signaled the changes as a boost to the national economy, its consultation paper on post-Brexit regulations also raises the possibility of changes in the way the public sector approaches the issue.
He talks about clarifications and changes in the use of personal data, removing bias in the use of algorithms and providing a clearer picture for data sharing.
