Friday lunchtime lecture: How much faith should we have in data?
Friday 10 February 2017, 1:00pm - 1:00pm
Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London EC2A 4JE
Friday lunchtime lectures are for everyone and are free to attend. You bring your lunch, we provide tea and coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.
We often talk about ‘evidence-based decision making’ or becoming ‘data-driven organisations’. But how much faith should we put in data? ODI CEO Jeni Tennison will look at how complex using data in decision making can be, and how, to get the best result, sometimes we should limit our use of data.
