Jared Keller explores why it’s important for organisations to empower people to play a more active role in deciding what happens to data about them

ODI’s Senior Technical Researcher Jared Keller speaks to special guests about why it’s important for organisations to empower people to play a more active role in deciding what happens to data about them. He also asks which system of decision making is best – individual, collective or delegated?

Three guests, Julian Tait from Open Data Manchester, Anouk Ruhaak from Mozilla Foundation and Emmett Townsend from Inrupt talk about their own organisations and the challenges and benefits of each approach, before opening out a wider discussion around issues of personal consent, legislation and making such initiatives successful and sustainable.
