Data & The Human
During September we are handing over Friday's lunchtime talks to Watershed Research team, this Friday we welcome Joyann Boyce, Grace Quantock & Hannah Little for a panel discussion exploring the human relationship with data.
This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel
Watershed’s Research team are taking over the Lunchtime Talks in September to share some of the work coming out of two of our current programmes, Bristol+Bath Creative R+D and the South West Creative Technology Network (SWCTN). Come and join us to find out more about data, responsibility and digital placemaking.
A lot of people see data as being removed from the human experience, something in the cloud. However, our data sometimes reveals a lot more about us than we might initially realise, maybe even things we didn’t realise about ourselves.
In this panel, we will be exploring the human relationship with data as a mirror, from how it helps us understand ourselves and others, to the consequences of data misrepresenting us, or exposing aspects of ourselves we may want to keep private.
The South West Creative Technology is currently running a year of thinking about data, and our data fellows Grace, Hannah & Joyann will talk about how each of their projects explores the relationships between data and humans.
Join us on Fri 11th September, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
