Data and a Dangerous Idea #dfdanger

This is a one hour discussion about data and the challenges it presents

What is Data, Data Science, and Data-Driven Decision Making? We will look at why is data important, and how can it be harnessed by people to help society. Data for both positive and negative use and its ethical challenges are also some of the topics to be addressed in this session.

It presents a dangerous idea – what would happen if we made all our data open?
