Data kingdoms and keys: The case of Google and the NHS

Dr Julia Powles
22 March, 4.00pm, School of Law, LG.06

For this year’s annual lecture on law and emerging technologies, we take on the valiant promises of computation and artificial intelligence – and the data deals necessary to power them. Across every field, from health and energy, to law and finance, data is the creed; the answer to everything. With a case study focusing on Google subsidiary DeepMind Technologies Ltd’s entry into the British healthcare market, we ask:
What is the public getting for these data deals?
