Understanding the ethical and societal implications of data is one of The Alan Turing Institute’s key research priorities.
We have created a 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 will drive the Institute’s research agenda in data ethics, and work across the organisation to provide advice and guidance on ethical best practice in data science.
The Group will work in collaboration with the broader data science community, will support public dialogue on relevant topics, and will set 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.
