        Subject: Data Debates


Dear Willard,

The next of the Data Debates at the British Library, jointly organised 
by the AHRC, ESRC, British Library and Alan Turing Institute will take 
place on Tuesday 19 September. Details are as follows:

Fake news, Brexit and Trump: data is the new power in politics that 
everyone wants to control

How can our personal data be used to shape opinions, debates, and even 
win elections? Is big data threatening democracy? Who should we trust 
and what is the future of data in public life?

In this Data Debate, a panel of experts will discuss what the future of 
data in public life could look like.

Panel includes:

Timandra Harkness, Journalist and author of /Big Data: Why Size 
Matters/ (chair)

Jonathan Bamford, Head of Parliament and Government Affairs at the 
Information Commissioner’s Office

Bernie Hogan, Turing Fellow and Senior Research Fellow at the Oxford 
Internet Institute

Joanna Bryson, Reader, Computer Sciences, University of Bath & 
Affiliate, Princeton's Center for Information Technology Policy

Maeve McClenaghan, Data journalist, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

Data Debates is a collaboration between the AHRC, the Alan Turing 
Institute, the British Library, and the ESRC and aims to stimulate 
discussion on issues surrounding big data, its potential uses, and its 
implications for society.
