Understanding the ethical and societal implications of data is one of The Alan Turing Institute’s key research priorities.
We have created the Data Ethics Group to lead our research in this area.
Made up of academics specialising in ethics, social science, law, policy-making, and big data and algorithms, the Data Ethics Group drives the Institute’s research agenda in data ethics and works across the organisation to provide advice and guidance on ethical best practice in data science.
The Group works in collaboration with the broader data science community, supports public dialogue on relevant topics, and sets open calls for participation in workshops, as well as public events.
In a connected project, The Alan Turing Institute is participating in the Royal Society and British Academy project on data governance.
