Better use of data is key to more effective government. Across government, teams are doing fascinating work with data. But those projects don’t get the attention they deserve.

At this month's event, the 16th in our series, the speakers presented their data projects in an exciting, quickfire format. Each speaker had eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

Our speakers were:

  • Dr Indra Joshi, Director of Artificial Intelligence at NHSX, on the work of the NHS AI Lab
  • Dr James Tucker, Head of the Government Data Quality Hub, Office for National Statistics, ‘Towards a data quality culture’
  • Lisa Allen, Head of Data and Analytical Services at Ordnance Survey, on taking a principles approach to data
  • Flt Lt (Dr) James Kuht, Special Projects at No.10 Data Science Team (10DS), on the Data Masterclass for Senior Leaders.

The event was chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Associate at the Institute for Government.
