LDoc Lectures: Data

Dear all

LDoc Keynote Lecture: Data

Monday 19th March, 6pm

Lecture Theatre 1, RCA Kensington

LDoc is proud to present a remarkable panel of experts to talk about data, focusing on data that represents people and the profound issues that this raises.

The speakers have backgrounds in the sciences and humanities; they work in the research arm of a global corporation, as CEO of a specialist data company, and in academia. How should data represent similarity and difference? How can big data benefit the individual? What does historic data reveal about our social and political past – and how can that past be brought alive?

Three presentations and a panel discussion will address these issues with vivid examples from the speakers’ own work.

 

Speakers:

Dr Siân Lindley: Data and its Street Life

Francine Bennett: Data, Science, People

Dr Katrina Navickas: Democracy in Place

 

Chair:

Professor Stephen Boyd Davies

 

All attendees are invited to a drinks reception following the panel discussion.

This event is open to the public, please invite anyone who may be interested. Please contact ldoc@rca.ac.uk if you have any questions.
