On December 2nd 2016, an interdisciplinary workshop took place at the University of Warwick on the social aspects of driverless cars. This subject featured prominently in a recent House of Lords report on the future of autonomous vehicles, and the following workshop report details some insights the workshop generated into the challenge of anticipating societal change in this area.

Missing Maps: putting the most vulnerable cities on the map
12th January 2017
4pm Talk by Pete Masters, MSF UK
5pm – 7pm Humanitarian Mapping Event
Location: OC1.04 (talk) / OC1.01 (mapping event) – The Oculus
What’s the point of spending loads of my free time sitting at a computer drawing round little shapes on blurry satellite images in places that I will probably never go?
Missing Maps is a crowdsourced mapping project, where 1000s of individuals dedicate hours of their time to tracing geographical features from satellite images. To an outside observer, it can look mind numbing, but these volunteers are providing NGOs and others with vital datasets that otherwise would not exist. For Medecins Sans Frontieres, Missing Maps volunteers have directly contributed to the provision of occupational health services in Bangladesh, mass vaccination campaigns in the Democratic Republic of Congo, cholera readiness in Sierra Leone and much more. Find out how by coming to hear this imaginatively titled talk.
After the talk, we will be mapping northern Nigeria together to support the MSF emergency response unit. Come, join us to learn how to help to produce maps from satellite images to support humanitarian work and have a lot of fun (and free pizza too).
