“Entering the Age of Data: A Focus on Data Inclusion” is the second video in our new series on Big Data and development.
Literacy is a deeply political question. As explored by our experts, becoming literate means being able to question the power structures and dynamics of the context in which you are literate – “Being able to relate to data is being able to relate to power and ask the important questions.” Who owns the data? Who is impacted by the data? What does data inclusion mean?
Filmed by Marina Katz.
