Data Bites #4: Getting things done with data in government

Wednesday 3 July 2019, 18:00 – 19:15

An event organised by the Institute for Government:

Better use of data is key to more effective government. Across government, teams are doing fascinating work with data. But those projects don’t get the attention they deserve.

At this event, the fourth in our series, four organisations will present their data projects in an exciting, quickfire format. Each set of speakers has eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

We will hear from:

Catherine Bromley, Office for Statistics Regulation, on their expectations of statistics producers to fulfil the potential of data to serve the public good
Dr Jane Kennedy, Head of Research and Data Hub at the London Borough of Newham, on Newham’s Data Warehouse
Ganesh Senthi, Senior Product Manager, GOV.UK, on using machine learning to help users find content
Michael Birtwistle, Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, on their AI Barometer

This event will be chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Programme Director and Head of Data and Transparency at the Institute for Government.
