The ethics of data science: addressing the future use and misuse of our data

27 March 2019

The reach of machine learning and artificial intelligence have expanded into our everyday lives. Governments and businesses around the world are making decisions based on data science techniques powered by machine learning algorithms, which are making a meaningful impact on human lives.

This raises an important question: how do we ensure algorithms are ethical?

This symposium will review current research and practice relating to ethical aspects of algorithms, assess limitations, and identify work required to pave the way for a new generation of ethical data science techniques. Bringing together expertise from diverse disciplines such as ethics, law, and artificial intelligence, this symposium is an an exciting opportunity to exchange views on the viability, legitimacy, and complexity of algorithmic decision making.
