How do Big Data affect your world?

A free public lecture series at the University of Kent will explore the impact of Big Data on people, decisions, services and the environment.

The ‘Big Data Can’ series is organised by the Business and Local Government Data Research Centre and is open to the general public, private and public sector employees, university staff and students to attend. Experts from the public and private sectors, and the world of academia will explore what Big Data can do to enhance the environment, evolve business, and empower society! Speakers will discuss their views and experiences, and will then join a panel to answer audience queries.

Throughout this series experts will talk about the exciting developments that data have already delivered and talk about what this could all mean for the future. However we will also address any concerns people may have about the way their data are used.”
