Launched in 2020, the project sits under the public policy programme’s ethics and responsible innovation theme. The aim of the Turing Commons is to provide a range of resources for various stakeholders that are curious about the ethical and responsible use of data. The guidebooks and subsequent training offerings aim to host resources for everyone, whether you're a curious citizen looking to have greater control over local matters, or a data scientist looking to take more responsibility over the consequences of your research.
The Turing Commons guides
The four guidebooks below are updated and added to regularly, representing a
- Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI): will explore what it means to take (individual and
collective) responsibility for (and over) the processes and outcomes of research and innovation in data science and AI.
- Public Engagement of Data Science and AI (PED): designed to help you understand the practical and
ethical value of public engagement with data science and AI.
- AI Ethics & Governance (AEG): coming soon.
- Citizen's Guide to Data: Ethical, Social and Legal Issues: This guide was produced
to support specific activities associated with a Resident’s Panel, organised, and run by Camden City Council, Involve. It was used to support the panel’s participants with understanding some of the ethical, legal, and social issues surrounding data use by local government. It is in the process of being updated and expanded to ensure it is useful for a broader audience beyond Camden.
Since 2020, we have developed reusable illustrations collaboratively with Jonny
