Welcome to the 6th Open Data Camp, in Aberdeen. It’s a grey morning outside, but the campers are full of coffee and pastries and getting ready to pitch the sessions for day one.

- There are complex supply chains for some data, so could we discuss mapping data flows, around data protection, providence and ownership?
- OS Open Zoom Stack – and other geovation stuff from the OS.
- Data for trustworthy AI – what can we do to make it more trustworthy?
- Can we do better than spreadsheets?
