An evening of open debate, as an academic panel of Turing Institute members from around the UK discuss the intersection of the Arts, Humanities, and Computational Technologies, and the place of the study of cultures and society in a big data age. Including Computer Scientists and Humanities researchers, this panel aims to openly discuss both what the Arts and Humanities can bring to, as well as take from, data analysis at scale, and identify opportunities and barriers. The discussion will be followed by a reception, and all are welcome.

Hosted by the Turing Institute Data Science and Digital Humanities Special Interest Group, and Digital Scholarship at the University of Edinburgh
