Free NCRM event: ‘Social science methods and automated data algoriths’

The National Centre for Research Methods are running a free event in London next Thursday 1 November on ‘Social science methods and automated data algorithms’.

This ‘Ahead of the Curve’ event will address questions such as:

  • Is there an interface between social science methodology and automated data algorithms (ADA)?
  • What can ADA learn from social science methodology in understanding the social world?
  • What are the implications of ADA for transparency, accountability and fairness?


We have an excellent panel of speakers lined up for the event, including:

  • Reema Patel, Nuffield Foundation: ‘Ensuring data & AI work for people and society’
  • Frederike Kaltheuner, Privacy International: ‘Understanding predictive privacy harms – Orwellian when accurate, Kafkaesque when flawed’
  • Mark Elliot, University of Manchester: ‘AI and privacy – problem or opportunity?’
  • Sofia Olhede, UCL: ‘Data governance and ethics of algorithmic decision-making’
  • Suzy Moat, University of Warwick: ‘Understanding beautiful places with deep learning’


The event is being held at the Urban Innovation Centre from 11am – 4pm, and lunch is included.
