Keeping It Personal

Paralympian Darren Harris draws similarities between people and prime numbers, and makes the case for a person-centred approach in the age of big data.

Darren Harris, a double paralympic athlete and mathematics graduate, draws similarities between people and prime numbers: each is indivisible and unique. In the age of big data, he makes the case for a more person-centred approach in public services. And he finds it in an unexpected place, somewhere more usually associated with a 'win at all costs' mentality: elite sport.

Producer: Giles Edwards.
