Prof. Charlotte Roueché, Old Data? The Functions of Cultural Heritage Data, King's College London, Charlotte Roueché is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Classics at KCL. For many years she has worked on the archaeology of the Greco-Roman world, particularly in Kuwait, Turkey and Libya; one of her principal concerns is to develop robust standards for the high quality online publication of such materials. This has required the collection of rich geodata; some of the material collected for Libya was used to inform the targeting of the 2011 air campaign in Libya.
Prof. Kate Bowers, The Role of Innovative Data in Advancing Crime Sci, UCL, Kate Bowers, is a Professor in Crime Science at the UCL Department of Security and Crime Science. Kate has worked in the field of crime science for almost 20 years, with research interests focusing on the use of quantitative methods in crime analysis and crime prevention. She has published over 70 papers and book chapters in criminology and in journals such as Criminology, the Journal of Quantitative Criminology and the Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency. She has guest edited a special issue of Crime Prevention Studies and co-edited a book on Crime Mapping. She serves on a number of journal editorial boards, and she has number of external appointments such as academic expert for the Crime and Policing Group in the Home Office and
Prof. Thomas Rid, King's College London, Thomas Rid is a professor in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London. Rid’s most recent book is Rise of the Machines, out in June 2016, in German as Maschinendämmerung. It tells the sweeping story of how cybernetics, a late-1940s theory of machines, came to incite anarchy and war half a century later. His recent research article, “Attributing Cyber Attacks,” was designed to explain, guide, and improve the identification of network breaches (Journal of Strategic Studies 2015). Rid’s book Cyber War Will Not Take Place (Oxford University Press/Hurst 2013) analysed political computer network intrusions; a Chinese translation is forthcoming with the People’s Publishing House. His text “Deterrence Beyond the State” (Contemporary Se

CRIS is a ground-breaking data resource providing researcher access to anonymised electronic health record data on over 200,000 mental health service users in order to promote translational research for improving mental health. He has had longstanding interests in the interface between mental and physical health, in the epidemiology of dementia and other late-life mental disorders, and in international ment
Prof. Chris Hankin, Imperial College London, Chris Hankin is Director of the Institute for Security Science and Technology and a Professor of Computing Science at Imperial College London. He was Deputy Principal of the Faculty of Engineering from September 2006 until October 2008. He was Pro Rector (Research) from June 2004 until September 2006. He was Dean of City and Guilds College from 2000-2003. His research is in cyber security, data analytics and semantics-based program analysis.

Cyber security, open source intelligence, web science, bioinformatics and crime science…all modern and relevant terms in the UK research landscape, and all with one thing in common: Data. Why are researchers interested in accessing publicly available data? What are they doing with anonymised, confidential data? How can open data provide us with intelligence? How can data from one field of research be used in another?

Join us at King’s College London for At War with Data, a unique finale to The Data Dialogue series. Hear from some of the UK’s leading researchers speaking about data and security and get the opportunity to join a discussion amongst peers and mentors.
