Data is a window into ourselves, the worlds of other and our planet. You can see the impact of our actions played out in data. Many are choosing to work in this fascinating field. Is their work being recognised and taken into account?
Often not, because there is a problem: Data is hard, but people are harder. In this talk you will learn how understanding different perspectives helps place technical work in context and be more successful. Yu'll be guided through perspectives and real world examples that help both technical and non-technical people deal with each other and understand their impact on the world.
