Making MyData Happen

This main-stage session is hosted by Molly Schwartz.

A growing number of startup, established companies and public agencies are busy on the MyData front: returning data to people, empowering users to understand and use their data, providing useful and valuable services. Hear from companies who are already providing platforms through which users take their data back into their own hands, and interact with organisations in a new may. They will share their experience, reflect on their successes and difficulties, and discuss their similarities and differences.
