Cambridge Festival of Ideas

The Power of Data

Are you a data nut or a data sceptic? Join the panel to hear how data enthusiasts are using personal and public data for social purposes, how citizens can access and use data relevant to their area, and how governments and researchers are drawing on huge datasets to drive policy and behaviour change.

The panel includes:

  • Hendrik Grothuis from the Digital team at Cambridgeshire County Council on how data is being used to improve services in your local area
  • Mark Farid talking about Data shadow, his current project about data at the Festival of Ideas
  • Dr Lydia Drumright, University Lecturer in clinical informatics on how medical research is benefitting from improving health data
  • Michael Sanders from the Behavioural Insights Team, also known as the ‘nudge’ unit, which is using data in innovative ways to improve government policy and services as well as to save the government money
