When companies build AI and data science capabilities into their business initiatives, it's important that they're prepared to tackle unexpected questions about the ethical impact of their projects. As teams approach critical points in their plan, they should have a frame of reference in place for understanding the ethical decisions being made. Javed will tackle these important considerations as he discusses ethical frameworks and regulations for data science and related fields including FATE (fairness, accountability, transparency, and ethics), Weapons of Math Destruction, and GDPR. He’ll also walk through case studies to help attendees recognize the ethical impact of data projects and apply those frameworks according to individual business circumstances.
Business leaders who attend this workshop will be able to:
- Recall and understand common data ethics frameworks
- Recognize the ethical impacts of data projects in real business applications
- Apply data ethics frameworks to business decisions
