The recent webinar was an excellent introduction to the field of data collection and our students really enjoyed it. It would be great to dive even deeper next time and get a more technical view on things and see more examples of use cases etc.

I think the recent session was highly informative; learning about what bots are and the ethical issues surrounding them.

I took part in the King's College London's Internships Insights Programme for 2021. This Business Opportunity Accelerator project connected me to five excellent KCL students to work as Business Consultants for Bright Data as part of The Bright Initiative. We performed market research analysis & delivered a comprehensive report showcasing strategies for new sector growth for the company. I'd like to thank The Bright Initiative by Bright Data for the helpful feedback & continuous support throughout the project.

Conor McLoughlin - Ph.D. Candidate at King's College London

The speakers were excellent. They explained the topic initially and then discussed back and forth asking each other questions - this format was great and really engaging. They also integrated the audience questions into their talk which I really liked.

Zobiya Shah, upReach Associate

The workshop was very insightful and opened my eyes up to a world I did not know much about.
