Last week the Open Data Institute (ODI) hosted their annual summit. This year the event was held virtually and included keynote talks, panel discussions and expo booths. The summit brought together people from a range of sectors to discuss the future of data. Topics covered included the use of data in innovation, climate studies, health, policy making, and more.

In the first of three keynotes, UK Minister of State for Media and Data John Whittingdale discussed the National Data Strategy. In the second keynote, Elizabeth Denham, the UK Information Commissioner considered the important question of who decides how we can use data.

The final keynote by Safiya Umoja Noble (UCLA) was entitled: “Algorithms of oppression: how search engines reinforce racism”. The ODI provided a nice summary of this excellent keynote in their Twitter thread below (click for full thread):
