Ethical Regulation of Technology and Data

Ethical Regulation of Technology and Data

We're carrying out research at the cutting edge of modern technology and big data.

Our research

We look at data and technology developments and creating ethical legislation for them.

Our work

Some of the important challenges the group engage with include:

  • privacy, smart cities and big data
  • regulation and algorithms
  • social media and law
  • human embryonic stem cell regulation
  • regulation of genome editing and mitochondrial developments
  • technological innovation and war
  • technology and legal education
We look at the use of automated technology in war.

Funding and impact

Our research contributes to development of government responses – most recently on COVID-19. We work with the Digital InstituteFaculty of Medical Sciences and Politics and external partners.

Colleagues in the group appear regularly in the media, including the BBC, the FT and the Guardian.
