LUCA's second white paper sees Dr Richard Benjamins looking at data as a force for good. This piece focuses on giving readers the ability to analyse the possibilities of Big Data for reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We believe that Big Data can be extremely useful in the development of society- which is what we call Big Data for Social Good. For this reason we are contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN for 2030. This white paper highlights research pilots including an example of a Columbian case study, whilst also taking into consideration potential barriers like privacy and data infringments.
