Big data, employment and information literacy: workshops

InformAll is supporting the Ethics of Big Data research group at the University of Cambridge in hosting a free series of workshops exploring how Big Data is reshaping the worlds of work, production and employment.

Big Data is a critical part of the information landscape, and is become increasingly ubiquitous. It represents opportunities, but also challenges, risks and sometimes even dangers; we need to know and understand what it means for individuals in the context of the evolving world of the workplace.

The events are free and open to all.

  • Monday 31th October 2016 – Managed by an algorithm? The rise of ‘on-demand’ working and the gig economy
  • Monday 14th November 2016 – The quantified self at work
  • Monday 28th November 2016 – Ethical perspectives on the use of automous computer systems on professional practices

All events run from 14:00 to 16:00 at the Centre for Research in the Arts at the University of Cambridge.
