The second day of ICCM 2013 in Nairobi, Kenya began with a panel hosted and moderated by Sanjana Hattotuwa, Special Advisor at the Foundation (read What's so Big about Big Data? | Panel at ICCM 2013, Nairobi, Kenya for details).

Tweets produced on this day flagged a number of issues around

  • the ethics and use of big data
  • disambiguation of terms related to big and open data
  • the pitfalls and challenges around early warning technologies
  • the gap between early warning and the political will to act
  • the challenge of assessing the impact of peacebuilding initiatives and
  • the lack of any proper contextualisation of ICTs in contexts of violence, power and (partisan) politics.
