Up for Debate: How Can Big Data Have a Social Impact?

9 responses

Big Data has the potential to transform development and accelerate social progress around the world, but there are issues surrounding understanding, ownership, privacy, capacity, measurement and more that need further dialogue and discussion. The Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship partnered with the HBR-The Bridgespan Group Insight Center on Scaling Social Impact to surface key insights and practical lessons in harnessing the power of data for large-scale social impact. This debate will also set the stage for a larger discussion on the topic at this year’s Skoll World Forum in Oxford, UK.
