About the Foundation

The World Ethical Data Foundation is a non-profit organisation that examines the opportunities and problems arising from the development of technologies that are opening unprecedented possibilities for knowledge and influence. The World Ethical Data Foundation is an organisation devoted to the impartial and balanced exploration of the urgent questions around the use and future of data and information.


At the back of our work is a modesty. Issues as unclear, significant, and universal, as those around data and knowledge technologies are no place for demagoguery but of balanced and collaborative effort by people and institutions of all perspectives, traditions, and cultures.

From our research and human rights related projects, to our interviews and the World Ethical Data Forum itself we are at work to facilitate better understanding and collaboration.
