Workshop Two: Big Data, Privacy and doing Social Good
Today, timely information is crucial. To respond effectively and efficiently to an event, be it the spread of pollution, disasters or overcrowding, governments and NGOs need to know where the impacted people are, in which direction they are moving and how the environment is changing. Mobile operators can provide that information, while respecting individuals’ privacy and safeguarding personal data.
This workshop will take you through a complete 360 of the topic, understanding the
framework and approach to analysing the data captured by telecoms, discussing the privacy questions and wrapping up with a guide to how you can capture and derive positive insights from the data in your organisation.
