The Human Side of Data Conference

‘The Human Side of Data’ – The Horizon CDT 2022 Conference

Behind each data point sits a person. This person navigates the digital space in many ways, allowing their world to be to be understood through the novel analysis of their data trail. The human experience of living in a data-intensive environment provides a range of encounters, especially where trust and regulation are involved. Also, this digital space spills into the physical world for all of us. With this in mind, what really is the human side of making sense of data?
