How has mobility data been used in response to the Covid-19 pandemic? What opportunities and risks have emerged with rapid adoption of this data across the public and private sectors?

In this ODI Fridays talk, Brennan Lake, Senior Director of Data for Good at Cuebiq, will share his experiences developing a multi-stakeholder data collaborative for the responsible use of mobility data in response to Covid-19.

Beyond this use case, as a co-author of an ODI report on mobility data during Covid-19, Brennan will also share insights on key enablers and roadblocks to the successful implementation of mobility data for academic research and public sector decision making.
