Citizens, give us your problems! How to Open Data without giving it away

Alexander von Humboldt Institut für Internet und Gesellschaft | Luiza Bengtsson, Jörg Pohle, Sonja Schimmler, Emmanuel Baccelli, Maximilian von Grafenstein

A workshop on Open yet Private Data and your chance to co-shape our research agenda on Data - Society Interface.

The increasing digitization of all aspects of human life has led to an avalanche of data that is collected, stored and processed. Analyzing this data would certainly promote a better understanding of society and help tackle some of the world’s most pressing societal challenges. Unfortunately, most of this data wealth is locked away in the data silos of public and private institutions and simply not accessible.

How can we make this data usable for scientific purposes and for the general good of the society and still take legal, ethical, economic or organizational challenges and legitimate interest of all stakeholders into account? We need your help! What societal problem do you think could be solved if only more data would be available? Where would we need to take it from and how? 

Join us for a workshop, where we will be working in teams to find the most creative problem with the most straightforward solution. Data experts from Infralab, ECDF, HIIG and Weizenbaum institute will guide us through the process. You’ll learn more about legal, ethical and technical issues surrounding open data, while helping us to refine our research agenda. Citizens, scientists, engineers, artists – everybody welcome!

PUBLIC WORKSHOP ON ZOOM.

This event is booked out.

The access to the event will be provided through the organiser and after registration. More information here.
