Opportunities to use untapped data science to support social, economic and financial inclusion : two 2 days of workshops at the Alan Turing Institute: 1-2 May 2018  

Posted by s.aragon on 26 April 2018 - 2:05pm

The Alan Turing Institute is delighted to invite you to two separate but related one day workshops that explore new forms of social exclusion in a digital society and the scope to monitor and mitigate these with digital resources. By bringing together social scientists, digital researchers and involved practitioners we hope to build partnerships to unlock new data and develop new tools and to strengthen the work of the Alan Turing Institute in these areas.

The workshops will involve presentations and round table discussions aimed at clarifying research questions, and helping develop research relationships.
