The Alan Turing Institute invites you to attend a webinar to discuss the findings from an independent Public Dialogue on Location Data Ethics with a panel of leading data experts.
The report was commissioned by the Geospatial Commission, an expert committee in the Cabinet Office, with support from the UKRI’s Sciencewise programme, and was delivered by public dialogue and data specialists Traverse and The Ada Lovelace Institute.
About the event
This event will cover the launch of the independent public dialogue report and will provide a chance for speakers to reflect on some of the key findings and explore further opportunities and challenges for location data ethics. At the end of the event, there will be an opportunity to network.
The public dialogue consulted 85 members of the public over four workshops and the report identifies their aspirations and concerns in relation to location data, as well as suggesting how to mitigate ethical risks and grow public trust.
The report includes findings on the public’s awareness of location data and its benefits, which was initially low; data security and their feelings of insecurity; accountability and governance of users of data; and consent, with participants generally comfortable with personal data being used in an aggregated form.
