DATA 2020-21

Data and how it’s used consistently influences our choices and opinions, raising questions about data governance, responsibility and ethics. Data has the potential to offer insights into how ‘things’ work, behave and develop. But with so much data now available to us, the integration of data and how it is governed via Smart City platforms and the Internet of Things is becoming crucial. Developing creative approaches and responses to data generation, and to its capture, management, retrieval and security are therefore at the foreground of this growing interdisciplinary field.

Creative thinking in this area could unlock new approaches, skills such as visualization, interpretation and story-telling, alongside recent media technologies and machine learning, might be able to help us understand, for example, climate or health data, or bring to life historical archives. Thinking critically about what data we collect and who and what it represents, including how we can navigate and learn from new and rich datasets is an exciting challenge.
