The growing ubiquity of algorithms in society

30th October 2017 @ 9:00 am - 31st October 2017 @ 5:00 pm
The Royal Society
Free

The usage of algorithms and analytics in society is exploding: from machine learning recommender systems in commerce, to credit scoring methods outside of standard regulatory practice and self-driving cars. The rapid adoption of new technology has the potential to greatly improve citizens’ experiences, but also poses a number of new challenges. This meeting will highlight opportunities and challenges in this rapidly changing landscape, bringing legal and ethics experts together with technologists to discuss implications, impacts and innovations.

LEARN cordially invites you to its end-of-Project Conference entitled 'Managing the Data Deluge: roles and responsibilities for your institution ' which will be held on Friday 5th May 2017 at Senate House, London. The use and sharing of research data has the potential fundamentally to change the way research is undertaken and shared. Pervasive networks mean that researchers are able to collaborate and share not only their publications, but also the research data, which underpins them. The LEARN Conference is designed to encourage all stakeholders – researchers, research funders, publishers, research organisations and senior decision makers – to explore what…

#TheDataDialogue 2016 At War with Data Cyber security, open source intelligence, web science, bioinformatics and crime science…all modern and relevant terms in the UK research landscape, and all with one thing in common: Data. Why are researchers interested in accessing publicly available data? What are they doing with anonymised, confidential data? How can open data provide us with intelligence? How can data from one field of research be used in another? Join us at King’s College London for At War with Data, a unique finale to The Data Dialogue series. Hear from some of the UK’s leading researchers speaking about…

#TheDataDialogue 2016 When Research Crosses Borders In an increasingly globalised world, research is reaching beyond geographical borders, raising questions on the methods, laws, and possibilities in moving or sharing data internationally. As the volume and type of data we create becomes more varied, sensitive, and complex, we need to ask: what are our own responsibilities as professional researchers collecting data overseas? Who is ultimately accountable for data produced with foreign partners? What happens when national laws and policy differ dramatically? May strategies be usefully shared within or across disciplines? We are pleased to invite Early Career Researchers, Academics, and Support…
