The secret world of data

4 September 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Data is all around us. So, what is really being done with it? Who can use it and why? And how can it help people?

Data is all around us. How our data is used, by whom and for whose benefit is a major topic of discussion.

So, what is really being done with it? Who can use it and why? And how can it help people?

This event will unpack how public sector data is being used securely for research and explore how linking different types of data can provide insights that benefit society.

From end-of-life care to Covid fines, we will discuss how researchers use data to understand the world better and improve public services, and how data is protected, and people’s identities are kept safe.

Get under the surface with Scotland’s leading experts! The Royal Society of Edinburgh’s summer event series, Curious, is back from 04-17 September.

Scotland’s national academy invites you to participate in this two-week celebration of extraordinary people discussing big ideas. Engage with Scotland’s leading thinkers as we will delve into contemporary issues through a range of extraordinary free talks, workshops, tours, and exhibitions.
