Looking for Humanity in Data

Data isn't only a story of numbers … or information … or insight. We forget, it is also about the people who interpret that data. Looking for Humanity in Data seeks to explain the ways in which behavioral data represents the mind and emotions of those who generate it. We do this by engaging with data science specialists and practitioners in this space. Our purpose is to translate from the scientific to the every day impact of technology on the individual. We'll discuss topics about information collection, privacy and governance, increased contextualization and what is at stake for everyone.
