From social inclusion to ethics, from skills to business, the emerging data economy cuts across many issues that matter to society and industry. Our 2019 conference will bring together key players from business, academia, and the public and charity sectors to get to grips with these complex issues.

Caroline Criado Perez, author of best-selling Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men, will also deliver a keynote talk and take part in a panel discussion on Women and Data, addressing issues of diversity in jobs and skills.

If you want to find out how businesses are using data to develop and diversify, or how charities are collaborating with researchers to tackle some of society’s most pressing challenges, join us at the University of Edinburgh on Tuesday 10 September.
