Introducing the Declaration for Responsible and Intelligent Data Practice

November 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free
Find out what the Declaration is, why we need one, what are the next steps, and how you can get involved.

In a world awash with data, the ability to make the right decisions regarding the use of data becomes increasingly more complex and difficult. Our capacity to create, collect and analyse data from disparate sources, using advances such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, creates challenges that are not only technical, but legal and ethical too.

Co-designed by Open Data Manchester with expert practitioners from public, private, academic, civil-society and voluntary organisations, the Declaration for Responsible and Intelligent Data Practice seeks to differentiate ‘the good’ from ‘the bad’ among those that use data.

In these sessions, Open Data Manchester’s CEO Julian Tait will explore:

  • What the Declaration for Responsible and Intelligent Data Practice is
  • Why we need a shared vision for data across Greater Manchester
  • How it was developed and what the next steps are
  • How you can get involved.

There’ll also be time to answer any other questions you might have.

Read the Declaration.

Note – this is a repeat of the events we previously held in October and will cover the same conent.

About the Declaration

The Declaration was co-designed over the 18 months to September 2020 with the generous support and expertise of practitioners from public, private, academic, civil-society and voluntary organisations.

It’s aim is to act not only as a statement of intent, but also as a means for developing and maintaining best practice in Greater Manchester.

Because it was created as part of a collaborative and deliberative process, it offers a common vision for what best practice in data for Greater Manchester, and everywhere, should look like.

Its aim is to act not only as a statement of intent, like the ‘first do no harm’ principle found in medical ethics, but also as a means for developing and maintaining best practice.
