Alan Turing Institute Privacy Summit 2016


The Privacy Summit 2016, is organised by UCL Computer Science Department in collaboration with the Alan Turing Institute, and provides a great opportunity to network and hear from experts in the field. It will bring together an array of experts and thought leaders in the space of privacy, identity and data protection to discuss the current and future challenges around personal information and privacy. A wide range of speakers will reflect on the public policy, Industry, civil society and technical perspectives around data privacy and data protection, and identify areas where the institute’s outstanding research capacity could provide answers to key societal privacy challenges.


Date: 22 March 2016, 9:30 – 17:00

About The Alan Turing Institute

This event will provide an opportunity to feed back to the academic community and the new Alan Turing Institute for data science. The Alan Turing Institute, which opened in London in Autumn 2015, will bring together leaders in advanced mathematics and computing science from the Universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, Warwick, and University College London. The Institute will conduct first class research and development in data science and promote the development and use of ‘big data’ to deliver benefit to a range of sectors. This summit will help the Institute to understand how their work can bring benefit to the built environment community.

The event is sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
