ActEarly: Holme Wood


On 10 January 2020, 124 people came together to talk about Holme Wood — a single locality in the Bradford District. The attendees
comprised front-line practitioners from community organisations, public service providers, local elected members and policy makers, alongside some of the world’s leading data scientists via invitation from The Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national centre for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science, with support from the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA). The purpose of the meeting was to address two simple questions:

“Can data science improve our collective understanding of a place like Holme Wood?”

“Can we use data to help the community strengthen and grow by ‘acting together’?”
