What the Ethics? Ethics of Data Decision Making
Sunday, March 13
11:00AM - 12:00PM
Hilton Austin Downtown
500 E 4th St
Many professions have their code of ethics. Medicine has the Hippocratic oath, the military has the Uniform Code of Military Justice even pirates had the Pirate code of the Brethren to systematize actions and guide the decision making process. It is high time that data science, analytics and data trades more broadly have an ethical code as well. However, unlike the examples above, data trades do not have time to develop this code of ethics.
This panel will explore data, ethics and decision making in three contexts: subject understanding and the re-humanization of data, search as algorithmic/human interaction and frameworks for classifying and understanding data-centric decision making.
