Never before has data played such an integral and granular role in how we live. On a daily basis, we are asked to make decisions about personal data about us – consenting to it being collected and used for many purposes. But how do we feel and think about data? Do we understand what the different types of data about us are, do we care how it is used, can we even control how it is used?

The ODI, alongside the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) and Luminate have explored what people think and feel about data, data rights and data ownership. Join us for this ODI Fridays lunchtime lecture to hear more about that work, what people want to see happen next and learn the about the different types of data about us.
