Workshop: Actionable Ethics for Data Scientists
It's time to make data ethics more practical and actionable. In this interactive workshop, Emily will illustrate the different types of ethical concerns that arise in the course of data science work, grounding these in concrete examples of times where things have gone wrong. Using a data ethics checklist framework (http://deon.drivendata.org), participants will then roll up their sleeves and practice examining the ethical implications of their choices as they navigate a case study on public and private sector uses of personal health data. Come learn how to jump start the ethics conversation all data teams should be having.
