President’s Series 13: This is data, I need information?

Andy Champness: Data, Information and Decision
Tom Dolan: Systemic Perspectives on National Infrastructure Systems



Hosted by our President, Dr. John Beckford FCybS, the CybSights President’s Series is a new programme that will bring interesting people together to explore the relevance and contribution of cybernetics to addressing important challenges.

Each event will consist of contributions by two different speakers. Each will be followed by individual Q&A. These are then brought together by the President in a lively and engaging plenary discussion. Each will seek areas of convergence and divergence between the ideas explored.

Events will be held via Zoom on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 1700 to 1900.

Meetings are open to members of the Cybernetics Society and also the general public. Non-members are invited to join or give a donation. Booking is required.

The Cybernetics Society has been hosting conversations and lectures since the late 1960s.

Data, Information and Decision

Police and Crime Commissioners govern policing, commission victims’ and offenders’ services to reduce crime and disorder and promote community well-being. They work with and across multiple statutory and third sector agencies. Governing 1.2 million people’s safety, justice, recovery and rehabilitation involves the collation and management of very large amounts of data but not much information.

The event is finished.
