Big Data: curse or cure?

Sheldonian Theatre, Broad Street, Oxford, OX1 3AZ

Big data has the potential to save the world. Scientists can use it to develop targeted treatments for devastating medical conditions. But can we trust that our precious information is being safeguarded?

Broadcaster and writer, Timandra Harkness, chairs this discussion featuring neuroscientist, Simon Lovestone, from Oxford University’s Department of Psychiatry, Nina Hallowell from the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities, and Daniel Kaute, member of the NIHR Oxford Health BRC Patients and Research and healthcare entrepreneur.

IF Oxford is operating a Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing system. This works by enabling you to pre-book events without paying for a ticket beforehand. Afterwards, you have the opportunity to pay what you decide you want to, or can afford. If you prefer, you can make a donation when you book.

There may be tickets available on the door – spaces may be reallocated if ticket holders are late.
