This is a live online event. Please do not travel to the Institute.

Better use of data is key to more effective government. Across government, teams are doing fascinating work with data. But those projects don’t get the attention they deserve.

At this month’s event, the 24th in our series, the speakers will present their work in an exciting, quickfire format. Each speaker has eight minutes, followed by eight minutes of questions from the audience.

This month’s speakers are:

  • Harry Lee, Deputy Director, Data Protection and Data Right at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on the government’s ‘Data: a new direction’ consultation.
  • Selvin Brown MBE, Co-Director, Energy Efficiency and Local, & Senior Responsible Officer – Net Zero Building Delivery at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and Alastair Vetch, Client Service Partner at Slalom, on establishing a culture of data-led policy delivery
  • Brhmie Balaram, Head of AI Research & Ethics at NHSX AI Lab, on the work of the AI Ethics Initiative and the ethical questions it is addressing about the use of AI in health and care
  • Toby Jolly, Grants Reporting and Analysis Lead at the Cabinet Office, on using automation to make government grantmaking more transparent.

The event will be chaired by Gavin Freeguard, Associate at the Institute for Government.

We will be taking questions virtually during the event via the integrated event chat.


Watch previous Data Bites events.

We would like to thank Slalom for supporting this event.
