How open data contribute to improving the world. The life science use case. The technical, social, ethical issues. This was a talk given within the iGEM 2020 programme by the London Imperial College students group (https://2020.igem.org/Team:Imperial_College), in a webinar organised by the SOAPLab group on the topic of Ethics of Automation. Excellent Dr Brandon Sepulvado was the other speaker of the day.
