Global Public Health: The Potential of Social networks, Participatory Systems and Context-aware Data


B404 Lecture Theatre 2 | Cruciform Building (link Map)
Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

This one day workshop, a part of the UCL Festival for Digital Health, will discuss the role of social media, crowdsourcing and participatory surveillance for public health in the light of the availability of heterogeneous big data sources providing a constant stream of real time situation-aware data. While the potential to improve health outcomes and provide signals for early warning has been demonstrated, more robust systems integrated with surveillance services need to be developed underpinned with user engagement. This workshop will present existing projects in the domain and discuss strategic directions for the future.
