Black Data Matters: How Missing Data Undermines Equitable Societies


Missing data matters: it can exacerbate inequalities on a societal scale. Beginning with the UK data landscape as it exists today, experts in race equality, decolonial theory, data and statistics, and data-driven technologies will interrogate missing data and its real-world effects. Shifting to a wider focus, the panel will apply these insights to consider the principles that should underpin data-driven technologies, their design and implementation, and how they can support rather than undermine an equitable society. This session has a follow up Q&A.
