Friday lunchtime lecture: Exploring open data and privacy

Friday 02 October 2015, 1:00pm - 1:00pm

Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street

You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.

In this talk, Madi Solomon and Andrew Beale of Optimity Advisors will explore some key issues in the anticipated European General Data Protection Regulations currently under review. We will delve into some assumptions on what constitutes “personal identifiable” information. With examples of unintended results from data analysis, and the proposition that privacy is a modern myth, Madi and Andrew will present a broad range of case studies to be debated and scrutinised.
