There is a public event coming up at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in South Kensington which I thought might be of interest. All these talks are also recorded and made freely available on the 21st Century Challenges website.
You can book for this event here.
We are living in a data explosion where we generate and consume data faster than we can keep track of and secure. This volume of new data presents us with additional challenges: what are we going to do with it? how are we unlocking its potential? and how are we making it work for society?
