From Human Data to Personal Experience

Lead Research Organisation: University of Nottingham
Department Name: Horizon Digital Economy Research

Abstract

Horizon is a multidisciplinary centre for Digital Economy (DE) research and impact. We balance the development of new technologies to capture and analyse human data, with explorations of how these can be used to deliver powerful experiences to people, with an awareness and understanding of the human and social values that must underpin these. We follow a user-centred approach, undertaking research in the wild based on principles of open innovation.

In its first phase, Horizon has established a core team of over 50 researchers and has reached out to build a wider network of 35 academic and 200 industry, public and third-sector partners. We have established a Centre for Doctoral Training and inaugurated the DE All Hands series of conferences and national DE CDT Summer School. World-class scientific outputs in diverse disciplines have been balanced with economic, cultural and societal impact.

This proposal builds on this critical mass to enable a step-change in Horizon's translational research and impact. We respond to the changing nature of the digital economy as it matures, as the social, physical and digital become blended and as human data becomes an increasingly valuable asset. We offer a vision in which human data enables the creation and delivery of highly personal experiences. We propose to address three major challenges. The first is to establish new technologies that collect and interpret our human data in a more transparent way. The second is to be able to better understand and design new kinds of experiences that employ these technologies to promote the values of personal fulfilment, wellbeing and sustainability. The third is to address key ethical challenges around design for privacy and new models of ownership.

We will work closely with a range of external partners whose interests span: computing and analytics; social policy; and diverse sectors of the DE including creative industries, retail, fast moving consumer goods, finance, energy, transportation and healthcare. We will engage these through a programme of agile translational research projects. These will be integrated into an overarching strategic impact campaign that revolves around three flagships. In turn, these will be supported by two further programmes; one targeted at sustaining the wider DE community and the second at developing the capacity of our researchers to deliver translational research and impact.

Planned Impact

This primary focus of our proposal is on delivering impact across the maturing Digital Economy. We target business, third-sector organisations and public bodies from a diverse range of sectors including creative industries, retail, consumer goods, finance, energy, transportation and healthcare, as well as companies who are delivering the enabling technologies for interpreting and managing personal data and also the organisations that are shaping public policy around these.

These will benefit in multiple ways, including:

- Understanding how to better interpret complex and ambiguous human data, including the potential of algorithmic, human and hybrid approaches;

- Understanding how to embed such interpretations into personally meaningfully experiences that meet wider objectives of fulfilment, wellbeing and sustainability;

- Knowing how to do this in an ethical way so as to maintain positive relationships with consumers, customers and citizens;

- Being able to envision and demonstrate future experiences that blend conventional media, services and physical products in new ways;

- Learning about the opportunities and challenges raised by such experiences through public deployments and field trials;

- Expanding the capabilities of the staff through exposure to new concepts, technologies and methods emerging from DE research;

- Gaining access to talented young people (especially CDT students) through internships and agile projects with the potential to recruit them downstream;

- Entering a neutral environment in which they can engage with other partners at different points along the value chain for future human-data experiences and from across the different sectors in which they are being applied.

Our proposal sets out a wide-ranging programme of impact activities to deliver these benefits, including agile translational projects, a strategically coordinated campaign to maximize impact among clusters of partners; and supporting programmes to develop individuals and the wide Digital Economy community.

Title Digitopia 
Description Digitopia was an installation deployed in the foyers of venues on Tom Dale Company's Digitopia tour (see http://tomdale.org.uk/production/digitopia/). The installation allowed customers to build a soundscape (generated based on audio taken from the Digitopia stage show) by rearranging shapes (inspired by the "geometric" characters in the Digitopia stage show). 
Type Of Art Artefact (including digital) 
Year Produced 2016 
Impact Based on evaluation by us and MOKO Dance, the foyer experience had a significant impact on the subsequent experience of the Digitopia stage show by customers, and provided a novel customer experience in the performance venue pre- and post-stage show. 
 
Title Dissimilar Reflections 
Description About the exhibition Staring at the Sea by Mark Taylor The work for this exhibition reflects my interest in the transcendental nature of the sea. Human culture and society are inexorably connected to the sea as the sea offers sustenance, hope and renewal. However, it also offers fear, uncertainty and incredible destructive power. Like many others I find myself drawn to the sea through what seems like a primal urge coupled with a fascination at the spectacle. The work I present here focuses on the calming influence of the sea and my personal connection with it. From a young age I have had to learn to cope with high levels of anxiety and bouts of clinical depression. This has to a large extent shaped my approach to personal work which often manifests itself as a form of therapy. In this instance, staring at the sea is something that becomes a meditative and contemplative experience. I enjoy the open space and the minimal aspect. The subtle interplay of light and colour between the Sea, sky and horizon offers an ever-changing aesthetic. The photographs in this exhibition are an attempt to reflect this. I take photographs here and there and then I spend hours patiently sieving through and find commonalities and connections, then classify them into to subject areas. This series is a combination of past work with additional new work made particularly for this show. There is a paradox of permanency and the ephemeral in windows/reflections . Eyes may be 'the window of the soul' but to me photographing windows/reflections is 'soothing of the soul' and more effective than medication for depression. Through a Glass Darkly by Tony Fisher The work I am showing is concerning windows: reflections/mirroring what they physically look like, what can be seen through them or what we can be seen from them and how the elements interact with them. Some of the photographs show decay and deprivation, some express hope and a new beginning and others just show absurdity and a sense of fun. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition

Title Religion and Mental Health 
Description About Melvyn Melvyn began his education studying A 'level Art and Design with Art History and Media Studies at Clarendon College (Nottingham), from 1983 to 1985. From there he enrolled upon a one year Foundation Course at Trent Polytechnic from to of 1986 and went on to gain a place ar St. Martin's School of Art in London that same year. Unfortunately, due to illness, Melvyn had to quit his studies. In May, 1987 he was put on a six month section order under the Mental Health Act. There began a series of admissions into hospital and he was diagnosed with Schizo-affective disorder. Melvyn has stayed out of hospital for the past 20 years, and gained much insight into the ways of the mind; in illness and in health. For the past 15 years he has created artwork from his studio space on Carrington St in Nottingham and continues to be influenced by the affairs of Mankind - his folly and his wisdom, the World at war and the World at peace. About the artwork "As an artist, I'm particularly interested in the affairs of Mankind; its religion, its politics, its World -as it is and, maybe, as it should be. I believe in one God, but many cultures, creeds, races and religions. I believe that God can transcend our differences, by focusing on our common humanity and needs as people -a world in union in a cosmopolitan pluralistic multi-faceted civilisation. There is a thread of interested in the theological that runs through my work, and a concern for the well-being of all people of the World through different cultures, belief systems, religions and the oneness expressed therein. 
Type Of Art Artistic/Creative Exhibition 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact The launch of this exhibition was accompanied by a round table about religion and mental health.

It's run by Dr Sue Black, who was named one of the top 50 women in tech in Europe in 2015, and was awarded an OBE following her campaign Saving Bletchley Park. The research team have liaised with Sue and her team, contacted Nottingham schools and organised a series of face-to-face meetings between the the partners. We secured public engagement funding from the School of Computer Science to support a pilot #techmums course at local secondary school Top Valley Academy, and worked with partners to make all the necessary practical arrangements for it.
Collaborator Contribution Sue Black has contributed her time for teleconferences and a visit to Nottingham to help make the necessary local connections. Top Valley Academy contributed use of their space and technology, resources to recruit participants and catering.
Impact Five training sessions were delivered by Sue and another #techmums trainer, Julie McCarthy, at Top Valley Academy. The course covers: cloud computing, app design, social media & security, web design and python programming. Each session was attended by one or two Horizon staff/students (nine in total across the course), offering support and encouragement to the mums. Having completed the course, the mums visited the School of Computer Science at Jubilee Campus for a graduation ceremony, bringing some of their children with them. Here they got to try out a Virtual Reality experience. Nottingham South MP Lilian Greenwood presented them with certificates and Technical Skills Manager Kelly Vere was an inspirational speaker. The activities have been documented through professionally produced video, blogs, surveys and social media.

PI Contribution Development of a pre- and post-show customer foyer experience to be delivered alongside Tom Dale Company's "Digitopia" tour. Academic evaluation of the foyer experience.
Collaborator Contribution Tom Dale Company (TDC) provided creative input into the development process during project meetings, access to rehearsals of the Digitopia show and access to productions of the Digitopia show. TDC negotiated for our use of the tour venues as deployment and evaluation sites for the foyer experience. MOKO Dance evaluated the customer experience, providing us access to the results of the evaluation for analysis alongside our evaluation.
Impact The foyer experience was the first of its type that TDC has delivered alongside a stage show. Over a two-month period, the tour visited 16 UK venues and Digitopia was positively received by audiences and found critical acclaim in the press. MOKO Dance and our evaluations found that the foyer experience changed the customers' cultural experiences of the stage performance. Going forward, TDC and Horizon are looking at ways to continue collaborating to develop TDC's ways of working, esp. around the introduction of interactive technologies into performances and managing the longer customer experience (i.e. before and after performances). TDC expect such collaborations to provide new routes to economic impact, i.e. new business models. Our academic evaluation of the foyer experience is currently under review by ACM DIS conference.

Sector Charity/Non Profit 
PI Contribution Co-development of a new visitor experience for The Workhouse at Southwell as a contribution to the National Trust's "re-imagining The Workhouse" initiative (a scoping exercise prior to engaging commercial developers to redevelop The Workhouse as a visitor destination). I led the Horizon part of the development process, building on my previous experience of scoping, developing and evaluating novel visitor experiences; Horizon also provided two technologies - Wander Anywhere and Artcodes - as a basis for the new visitor experience.
Collaborator Contribution National Trust provided staff time (esp. significant time of their Re-imagining the Workhouse consultant) to take part in the co-development. They provided full use of The Workhouse site for two days a week for a month to run and evaluate the new visitor experience. They covered the costs of a large scale public launch evening (for 150 people). They covered the costs of promoting the visitor experience. National Trust also evaluated the visitor experience.
Impact Over 3000 visitors experienced Wander the Workhouse over the course of a month. The results of this collaboration informed the subsequent specification of National Trust's redevelopment of The Workhouse, and the commercial partners it has engaged to carry out that redevelopment. As such, at this stage it has impacted on the ways of working of the National Trust at The Workhouse; the redevelopment is likely to have a significant economic impact on The Workhouse when it is complete.

Title Data Journeys Archway 
Description The Data Journeys Archway is a physical arch that people can walk through. It is augmented with distance sensors, LED lights and projectors to sense people stepping through and to feed back on their interaction. It was a first experiment as part of the development of a larger archways project, an outcome of and follow-on from Andrew Wilson's shared research residency with Mixed Reality Lab and Sustrans (the national active travel charity) and Nottingham Research Fellow Holger Schnädelbach, funded by Horizon. When people approach the arch from either side, we project a question onto the ground in front of the arch, for example "Who has opened a door for you and where did it lead?". People have a chance to think about that question even if they chose not to walk through the arch. If they then decide to walk through the arch, we use a sensor to record their height, which is displayed on the strips of LEDs on the side of the arch as they pass through. An observer discreetly using a web page on a mobile phone records some basic facts about the person, for example male or female, wearing a hat or glasses (when applicable), along with a choice from a range of positive statements about a personal quality, for example "Always smiling" or "Steps forward boldly." As the person passes through the arch, their height, their personal qualities, and a piece of "wisdom" in the form of a positive quote, such as "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. [Thomas Edison]"chosen at random from a list, are projected in front of them on the far side of the arch. The Data Journeys Archway is designed to make people reflect on their physical and personal journeys through live. It is also a vehicle to discuss with people how the built environment is complicit in the journey of personal data to become big data. 
Type Of Technology Physical Model/Kit 
Year Produced 2016

Participants engaged and discussed about their online preferences and/or concerns regarding: algorithm bias, filtering systems, fairness and privacy issues.

At the end of the sessions, networking with teachers led to establish links with schools to promote other current research activities within our research team (e.g., UnBias Youth Juries). Also, this activity contributed to develop strong links with the organisers of the Science and Curiosity Festival, which takes place annually in Nottingham, and to express our interest to take part in future events.

Results and Impact This workshop will bring together key scholars with a shared concern for the ethics of drawing on social media data. In this workshop we will aim to share knowledge and best practice in order to inform our own and others' practices when working with social media data, with a focus on key areas including privacy, informed consent and risk. The proposed outcome of the workshop includes a new ethical framework with guidelines for best practice in social media research.

During the two-days workshop participants co-constructed a set of ethics guidelines for both researchers and ethics panel members in order to guide research protocols. It was very productive and by the end of the second day we had a set of guidelines and a series of case studies that illustrated the main ethical challenges to be taken into account.

The workshop was part of a project being carried out at the University of Aberdeen called "Social Media Privacy and Risk: Towards More Ethical Research Methodologies", which is part a grant from the Economic and Social Research Council "Social Media - Developing Understanding, Infrastructure & Engagement (Social Media Enhancement)" (ES/M001628/1).

Results and Impact Lilian Edwards organised an Algorithm Workshop on 27th February at the Technology Innovation Centre (TIC) at Stathclyde for the benefit of Internet Law and Policy Masters students, and Internet law Honours students, as well as invited guests from law, technology and business and public attendees. The event was a sell out with 300 attending and created much interest on social media.
The workshop considered the legal, social and technical dimensions of algorithms and their role in governance. As our everyday lives are more and more determined by decisions made by automated algorithmic processes, the status of algorithms and how they can be regulated , queried and countermanded, becomes evermore important. To give just a few examples, algorithms now often determine how we are assessed as risks for policing and terrorism surveillance: how we get hired, fired and promoted; and what news and political opinion we are exposed to. Both personal and societal welfare and arguably, the future of democracy itself, thus depend on being able to regulate and make accountable the algorithm society. In particular a major current question is if a right to explanation of what an algorithm has decided exists in data protection law? Lilian spoke on this in her contribution: ""Slave to the Algorithm: War Stories and Legal Remedies".
We hope the event will be a "starter seed" for CILP and partners (including Edinburgh and Horizon DEC, Nottingham) to investigate this fascinating topic further and we will be seeking major grant funding. ax 120000 characters)

Results and Impact The CaSMa blog disseminates and publicize work and events designed to address the ethical challenges around social media.
To date, the blog has attracted more than 5,000 views and over 400 subscribers. During the last year, the CaSMa blog has posted more than 70 blogs, received many comments from followers (n>39) and several requests for guest posts (e.g. World Wide Web Foundation (webfoundation.org).
The blog is a valuable tool to publicize events, showcase current research projects and inform the public about current topics on social media research as well as provide a platform for the public to engage and communicate with the CaSMa team. For example, after the last public engagement event organised at Nottingham Contemporary, one of the attendees posted:

'Hello, I attended the most recent event. The event was organised masterfully and conducted with the utmost dignity and professionalism yet remained safe, supportive, engaging and thought provoking, it was "real".

At the end of the debate I posed the question, "is the emerging phenomenon of digital interaction a window into Jung's collective unconscious." This could be refined into a debate/exploration of virtual social groups and crowd consensus or dissension on the internet and perhaps their effects on the physical world.

Evidence that the CaSMa blog is reaching policy makers is evident from two occasions:
On December 7th 2015, following a blog post regarding the House of Lords inquiry into online platforms we were contacted:
Dear Dr Koene,
I just noticed your short blog on the Lords inquiry into online platforms, particularly commenting on the question relating to algorithms.
Would you care to respond to our inquiry, on that one question? You clearly have a lot of expertise in this area. A page or two would be sufficient and would certainly enrich the debate.
The only issue is that we will stop accepting submissions on the 10th of this month.
Nevertheless, given that you have already more or less written it
Best,
Kilian

On January 5th 2016, following blog posts on the draft Investigative Powers Bill we were contacted:
Dear Ansgar,
I work with the team leading on the Investigatory Powers Bill in the Home Office.
I hope you don't mind my approach, but we saw that you'd produced an analysis of the IP Bill on the CaSMa project blog site, and wondered if you might be interested in an informal discussion with officials working on the Bill. This could either be in London, or via phone if that were more convenient.
If you are interested in setting something up please do get in touch.
Best regards
Rebecca

Geographic Reach National
Primary Audience Third sector organisations
Results and Impact Are children's rights being newly infringed or enhanced in the digital age? Such questions concern researchers, child rights' advocates, and internet governance experts. Yet children's needs and experiences in the digital age are often neglected in high-level debates about global internet provision and governance and children's rights are treated as a minority interest and seen as demanding exceptional treatment from adult society. Further, current debates frequently emphasise the risks children potentially face online and underline their right to protection, but much less attention is gven to children's provision and participation rights online.

The conference will foster an international debate on key issues related to children's and young people's rights in the digital age, including: child and youth participation rights; online opportunities and risks; inequalities and digital exclusion; policy and multi-stakeholder governance; the role of peers and peer culture; participatory research; e-learning, health promotion and creativity in the digital environment; cross-generational dynamics of online engagement.
The conference includes a plenary presentation from Global Kids Online. It will begin at midday on 26 July and close at midday on 27 July to enable delegates to make the journey to Leicester for the opening of IAMCR 2016 (approximately one-hour train journey).

Primary Audience Other academic audiences (collaborators, peers etc.)
Results and Impact This activity brought together the three Hub to share our research portfolio and discussion future steps and synergies.
The event started with a series of talks from each Hub followed by a brainstorming session on key issues.
The talks included:
Tom Rodden, Nottingham introducing 'CaSMa: Citizen-centric approaches to Social Media Analysis'
Pete Edwards, University of Aberdeen, on 'Social Media - Developing Understanding, Infrastructure & Engagement'
Ranald Richardson, Newcastle, on 'Social Media Analytics for Social Geography'

Claire O'Malley, Nottingham, facilitated the brainstorming sessions on key issues:
1. Social science issues in common/different/missing across the hubs
2. Key challenges identified by each hub
3. Technical infrastructure issues
4. Stakeholder engagement
Plenary report from lead for each session

This event concluded with a final discussion of next steps by Derek McAuley (Nottingham)

This was a great opportunity for Hub members to meet each other, build relationship and connect our work.


Topics discussed:
1. Key challenges identified by each hub
2. Social science issues in common/different/missing across the hubs
3. Technical infrastructure issues
4. Stakeholder engagement

Points raised in discussion:
Key Challenges:
Ethics: recognising that there is a problem.
- Responsible products
- Unintended consequences
- Companies and legal liabilities
- There is a need for a simple set of principles of personal data use for businesses, involving compliance-checking and possibly a kitemark to engender consumer trust.
Methodological issues:
- Different cultures
- Narratives
- Biases
- Epistemology
- Spotting big data issues
- Managing continual 'newness'
- Is human data different to human tissue?
- Issues of mistrust
Data Access and Ownership:
- Data is becoming increasingly valuable
- SM data is not always 'owned'
- What does ownership and licensing mean in this context?
Data Management and Training:
- Training/understanding of use of data?
- Personal nature of SM data
- Are services like UKDS on top of SM data issues? What is their role?
- Should there be a national point for training on these issues?
- Conveying ethical issues in SM data use to students and embedding in courses
- Translating to industry
Representativeness of the data being studied:
- Issues of sampling and selecting the behaviour to be observed discussed.
- Importance of statisticians in giving greater understanding of these issues.
- How does researching social media phenomena change what is being studied?
- Participants as subjects or co-authors?
- Issues of privacy, trust and understanding.

Social Sciences and Technical Issues:
- Sampling issues are key for approaches such as corpus linguistics (which assumes as systematic selection of texts).
- Issues around individuals using social media to 'perform identities' - personal brand management, particularly in platforms like twitter.
- Different demographics' use of different social media platforms.
- The importance of context in understanding, e.g., the impact of mobile vs static use of social media; the goals and set up of the social media platform and their impacts on posts, e.g., facebook vs. linkedin.
- Longevity of data: expectations that data is transient (e.g., snapchat) and right to be forgotten.
- Can we ever get truly informed consent and is withdrawal of consent possible?
- How does online identity affect offline behaviour?
- Qualitative and quantitative issues - geotags/timestamps.
- Relationships between social science theory and data: pluralism, multiple narratives, appropriate claims.
- Need to understand tools to develop progressive values.
- Effort is needed in collecting data - good sampling methods so not 'cherry-picking' data.
- Public views: shaping, cyberbullying, what is twitter etiquette?
- Start reframing technical infrastructure as 'sociotechnical infrastructure'.
- Issues of protection versus technical development.
- Issues of the intelligent customer.
- Vision of toolkit - SPSS++, R?

Stakeholder engagement:
Existing links and future possible partners were explored:
- Social rights groups, e.g., Liberty (existing links via Horizon)
- Census
- Local Authorities who are trying to use social media to broaden engagement - issues of exclusion and empowering the already-empowered.
- Broader public engagement
- Policy Makers (e.g., ICO)
- Question: what should our relationship be with SM platforms such as facebook/twitter/google?

Question: Is there a strategic RC mission around social media data that we can work to?

Wrap up and discussion of next steps (Derek McAuley, Nottingham)

• Possible joint future workshops:
- Engaging with stakeholders such as privacy international and/or local authorities
- Research data management plans for social media: recommendations for researchers/training for peer reviewers. Produce a guide?
- Given that ethical issues were common to all hubs, this seems like a likely topic for us to come together again on.
• We will plan to schedule meetings 6-9 months in advance
• We will share information on events across the three hubs
• Branding: we will seek further guidance from ESRC on whether/how we might brand our activities as part of the social media research community.

Results and Impact The European Dialogue on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) is an open multi-stakeholder platform to exchange views about the Internet and how it is governed. Created in 2008 by several organisations, government representatives and experts, it fosters dialogue and collaboration with the Internet community on public policy for the Internet. Culminating in an annual conference that takes place in a different capital city, EuroDIG 'messages' are prepared and presented to the UN-led Internet Governance Forum.

EuroDIG is supported by a group of institutional partners, namely the Council of Europe, the European Commission, the European Regional At-Large Organization (EURALO), the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the Internet Society (ISOC), the Federal Office of Communications of Switzerland (OFCOM) and the Ré- seaux IP Européens Network Coordination Centre (RIPE NCC).

The main aim of EuroDIG is to promote the engagement of Europeans in multistakeholder dialogue in order to share their expertise and best practice and, where possible, identify common ground. This enables EuroDIG to pull together national perspectives and to apply and shape European values and views regarding the Internet.

Participation at EuroDIG allowed us to establish contact who have since joined out stakeholder engagement group for the EPSRC funded UnBias project (EP/N02785X/1)

The exhibition involved 22 exhibitors and coincided with the annual TaPRA 2015 conference. I exhibited some digital objects I made for a study with children under four and their careers in February 2015. The exhibition allowed me to demonstrate my work to a variety of theatre practitioners, including scenographers.
The small felted objects/ props are designed with computational capacities. Tilt, magnetic, sound and accelerometers sensors stitch onto felt with conductive thread and connected to actuators or outputs to trigger sounds, lights or vibrations. The mobile objects were sometimes worn or use as puppets by the performer and child participant. I received a positive response from the audience t about the objects and my research.

The field trip researchers were highly impressed by the knowledge, experience and commitment of the people they interviewed, while Nottingham proved to be the ideal environment in which to explore the relationship between RRI and public policy making. We're delighted with the feedback we have had from the NUCLEUS team and on behalf of the Stemcity partnership I would like to extend my grateful thanks to all of you who gave up your time to take part in the programme and also to those who worked so hard behind the scenes to make the interviews happen.

The field trip identified a number of common themes emerging from the interviews including:

Nottingham has a very positive culture of partnership working between its research institutions and public policy makers
However if RRI partnerships are to realise their potential dedicated management is needed
Nottingham has an opportunity to be a 'living lab' in order to test bed new RRI approaches

Follow-up conference
In order to interrogate these findings in more detail a follow-up conference will take place on Friday 7th October from 9.30am - 1.30pm at the Council House. Through group workshops and plenary discussion we will explore:

Strengthening local partnership working
Developing test beds for new RRI approaches
The impact of Brexit on UK RRI

Co-hosted by Nottingham City Council and Nottingham Trent University the conference is free to attend and a buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Attendance is not limited to NUCLEUS field trip participants and we welcome registrations from other interested colleagues and partners. However places are limited to 40 so please confirm your attendance as soon as possible.

Results and Impact In response to a call for recommendations by the UN expert advisory group on data revolution, as part of the process for establishing the UN global development agenda after the 2015 millennium development goals (MDGs), we submitted commentary on the proposed data revolution agenda, highlighting the importance of addressing the imbalance of power between data hosting organizations (including companies) and the people whose lives are captured by his data. Unless people are given greater powers over their own data, fear of loss of privacy and freedom of agency will result in a loss of trust that will undermine the ability of the UN data revolution to achieve its goals of stimulating development through increased transparency.

The wording of the draft report by the Data Revolution Group includes more references, compared to the initial proposal, to the need to respect people's privacy and take consideration of ethical concerns with big data.

Geographic Reach International
Primary Audience Policymakers/politicians
Results and Impact Smart online platforms will be a vital enabler of future economic growth across the EU and a key component of the EU single digital market. They also promise new ways to pool and mobilise society's resources with the potential to address various impending social and environmental crises.

However, to reap these benefits, new thinking is required around the regulation and governance of smart online platforms to ensure balanced interests, and to promote fair and safe forms of participation, particularly relating to the role played by algorithms and data in driving economies of scale.

This policy event will provide a forum to address the following questions:

What are the challenges and opportunities for public policy of Smart Online Platforms?
How can we leverage platforms for a more equal, just, and knowledgeable society?
How can platforms play a role in reducing the social divide and retain hard-won rights and protections?
What are the challenges and opportunities for existing industries from their disruptive business models?
How should the regulatory environment change and what new regulatory institutions or instruments may be needed?
How can these technologies support public objectives and help policy makers deliver solutions at greater scale and of greater impact?
This event is being organised by the Smart Society EU FET project which has been exploring technologies and governance models for the next generation of Smart Platforms. The event will include the launch of the Smart Society Social Charter, and high-profile keynote talks.

Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact The V&A in London annually hosts a 'digital design weekend', coinciding with the London Design Festival. As one of the largest museums in the capital, this is a vibrant space to attract technology minded participants that are already motivated to engage in design. The theme in 2016 was the future of engineering and making. Members of the public visiting the museum could interact with installations and hands-on activities delivered by invited artists, designer, engineers and technologists. A free publication called Engineering the Future providing additional information about the work presented was also distributed at the event (and subsequently online). In total across Saturday and Sunday 24,487 people visited the festival.

Throughout the course of the two-day event, members of the project team - along with a couple of doctoral student volunteers gaining experience of public engagement activities - were based in the Museum where anyone could drop-in and participate. During the two days of the event 151 members of the public took part in our workshop 'sowing the seeds of wellbeing'.

Shortly after the Digital Design Weekend, the workshop was repeated locally, at project partner St. Ann's Allotments, where we deliberately set out to recruit participants with an established interest in growing plants, but not necessarily in design and technology innovation. This workshop was run with 5 participants.

Results and Impact The purpose of this on-day workshop was to explore the type of research questions identified by researchers, clinicians and policy makers on the topics of mental health/well-being and social media data. Special attention was given to the ethics of personal data in both theory and practice and how social medial data (small data) can be accessed and analysed to:

- Understand the ways people use social media and what this means for individuals and society.
- Understand social phenomena and events expressed in social media by drawing upon social media as a critical, and timely, source of information.
- Develop facilities and approaches that are sensitive to the personal nature of human data: Citizen centric approaches.
- Promote responsible innovation in the capture, analysis and use of human data.

The ultimate goal of this workshop was to gather the knowledge needed to develop 'Facilities and tools for Citizen Social Science' and facilitate data access from an ethically sound approach.
