Launch event for the UCL JDI Research Laboratory - the secure datalab
Wed, March 22, 2017, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM GMT
The JDI Research Laboratory - also known as the secure datalab - is a £1m state-of-the-art secure data facility, the first of its kind at a university in Europe. The JDIRL is a Police Assured Secure Facility for the storage of confidential data, accredited by the Metropolitan Police Service. It was established at UCL through a collaboration between the UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science (JDI) and the UCL Department of Computer Science.
The lab hosts confidential and sensitive data-sets, for the purposes of research and analysis. We anticipate research across a wide range of domains to take place in the lab - crime and security, health, finance, banking, transport, customer analysis, marketing, and population studies - to name but a few.
This event aims to launch the lab and to discuss the ways in might be used - by both the UCL community and the wider practitioner community.
