The potential power of synthetic data in government

A Session by James Poulten (Lead Data Scientist, Made Tech)

About this Session

More so than ever before, data is being used within the services and support we offer communities. As you’d expect, this data can be highly sensitive with guardrails put in place often making it difficult to share or collaborate with other departments.

So how do we enable inter-departmental collaboration that helps create the best impact on society?

By producing high quality synthetic data sets that maintain information but obscures sensitive details, public sector teams can reduce the risks associated with sharing real data. Synthetic data also allows collaborators to build and train highly complex machine learning models without exposure to the real data and with confidence their analysis will still be relevant.

Join us for our Digital Leaders Week talk on Tuesday 20 June at 10am. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the ways the creation and use of synthetic data can be used by government departments. We’ll focus on the rapid development of advanced analytics and how this type of data can support collaboration.
