JENI TENNISON, Technical Director at Open Data Institute
We are living through a Data Reformation, with information increasingly available to us when we need it, and how we need it. But what are the implications for the non-data-savvy? Does sharing data just lead to greater knowledge inequalities? In this talk, Jeni will discuss how the choices that we make about sharing data can change the society we live in.
