The application of big data for social change represents a relatively new trend. The major ICT corporations view big data as a critical driver to generate new insights across a range of fields, from health care to environment and education. At the same time concerns around big data focus on tracking and targeting consumers.
This roundtable will provide an opportunity to discuss challenges, solutions and policy recommendations on the topic of Big Data and human rights to shed light on how big data can be used for social good.
This event is part of CSR Europe’s project Source For Good: Advancing the human rights and sustainability agenda in global value chains. For more information, consult the project page.
