The Radical Data Project is a research project that is also researching what it is.
There is a goal. We want to imagine a data science that works for citizens and communities instead of destabilising democracies and selling us more shoes.
But RDP involves working out how to do that. We think it involves looking at what other projects are out there, working out the connections between them and publishing our findings. We think it very likely involves our own interventions. We think it works across disciplinary boundaries such as art, activism and social science. involves designing visual metaphors for invisible, complicated software concepts.
The Radical Data Project was initially setup by Jo Kroese and has since grown to include a range of contributors including artists, data scientists, designers and technologists. If you'd like to get involved, please get in touch.
