After a coffee break, Mark van Embden-Andres presented work from Elva, a consultancy agency based in Georgia, on how to collect digital data from local communities. He discussed the integrity and verification, and the problems and challenges of the methodologies of data collection related to types of data.
After each work group presented their findings and discussions. We convened to set the foundation for a manifesto for Big Data for Humanity. We came up with a lot of words and short phrases — mostly ideal but hopefully pragmatic too. We’re excited to see the final product!
