In A Post-Brexit World, The UK Has The Potential To Be A Pioneer In The Use Of Big Data For Machine Learning And Artificial Intelligence.

Location: Amazon Web Services new London office; 3rd Floor, Beaufort House, 15 St Botolph Street, London, EC3A 7DT

Data could revolutionise the UK government’s approach to public service reform, if the right balance is struck between data privacy and data-driven innovation.

The implementation of theEU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect May 2018 is unavoidable. Although seeming onerous and causing disruption for many organisations, its application should take a balanced view of data privacy and data-driven innovation to stimulate best practice, increase citizen awareness and protect privacy.

The example of the NHS and Google DeepMind should be a lesson learnt for the government that no matter how good the cause and intention, individuals view their data as sacred, personal to them and take the Data Protection Act seriously.

UK Government can lead in this by promoting ethical data management, effective data sharing, secure data storage and advocating balanced data privacy.

To discuss and explore this we are delighted to announce a morning of discussion among your peers chaired by Kable Business Intelligence.

Here, some of the best minds in data management will discuss just how this can be done, including Jessica Figueras, Chief Analyst at Kable Business Intelligence, who will chair a roundtable discussion on the topic. She will be joined by Sayara Berg, Chief Data Science and Data Governance Strategist, who will deliver a keynote entitled: ‘Data and what that means for Government’.
