Dr Jeremy Knox
£5000 Global Academy & Edinburgh Futures Institute
The University of Edinburgh is currently involved in a number of large-scale projects grounded in the idea of using data-driven technologies to solve local and global challenges.
There is a pressing need to enhance the critical capacity of these initiatives by giving due attention to the technologies themselves, and asking challenging questions about how data are used, and what kind of agency stakeholders have in the process.
As a Global Academy and Edinburgh Futures Institute Fellow, Dr Jeremy Knox will be working across the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to build awareness and understanding of the social and ethical implications of our increasingly 'datafied' institution.
