Public Panel Discussion
During Lent Term the Ethics of Big Data group explored the challenges of applying ethical reasoning in different contexts connected with Big Data research. Our invited speakers presented and discussed case studies from data-driven health and policy research in Africa, administrative data research in the UK, the implementation of eHospital, a new digital platform linking patient records across Cambridge University Hospitals and research using social media data, including a study of the Islamic State organisation.
The term's programme will finish with a public session on 9 March where an invited panel of experts from a range of different disciplines will be invited to consider a 'mock' research proposal which brings together a variety of the challenges from the real life case studies and present their reasoning to the audience for discussion.
