Bill Mitchell, director of policy at BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT, signposts examples of how algorithms have been used to support government policy priorities since Covid-19.

Speaking at UKAuthority's Data4Good event he explored why they didn’t work out quite as well as they were supposed to, and what could be done to ensure such unintended consequences are avoided next time.

Mitchell was among speakers from local and central government and the NHS who took part in the three-day online event exploring how the public sector has harnessed data in the Covid response; and what together this means for data sharing across the sector in our 'new normal'.
