The ODI Summit 2018 will explore the intersection of data’s value across sectors – from commercial business to public services, the arts to charities



ODI Summit 2018 – London, 20 November 2018

As stories of data use and misuse fill the news, questions about data’s role in society are more timely than ever.

Introduced by our co-founders, inventor of the web Sir Tim Berners-Lee and AI expert Sir Nigel Shadbolt, and ODI CEO Jeni Tennison OBE, the ODI Summit gathers people from governments, businesses and civil society to discuss major issues of the day – from ethics to trust, business models to emerging technology.

This is the fifth ODI Summit and we’re proud to be offering another lively, fun and interactive day with influential keynote speakers, discussions, performances and demos.

“The best conference of the year”
– Volker Buscher, Director, Arup
