Hosted by the Centre for Machine Intelligence and Web Science Institute with support from the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account, the workshop brought together businesses, government, the Alan Turing Institute, the Open Data Institute, the Southampton Connect Initiative, and researchers from the University of Southampton.

The aim of the workshop was to identify challenges and brainstorm project ideas for the development of secure and trustable data sharing infrastructures. Attendees had the opportunity to bid for seed funding to develop partnerships with a view to accessing funding for collaborative research or proof-of-concept projects.

The UK government expects that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will add £630bn to UK industry, but this added value relies on the availability of large volumes of high quality data that must be pooled together by different organisations across multiple sectors.There is an urgent need for data sharing ecosystems that promote governance, equitability,trust, ethics and privacy.
