Data Science & Society Symposium (2nd edition)

Activity: Organising and attending an event Organising and contributing to an event Academic


Data Science is changing rapidly with the continuous emergence of new technological capabilities, enhanced methods to analyse, store and share data which stem from the ‘datafication’ process happening in society. These rapid and profound changes occurring in different scientific disciplines raise the question of how society could and should engage with the developments.

Our mission is to identify interdisciplinary approaches and solutions that enable society to reap the benefits of datafication, and use data to produce fair, just and sustainable outcomes that promote human dignity.

This symposium also marks the end of the second year of the Data Science & Society bachelor programme at Campus Fryslân, University of Groningen.
