Wednesday, October 13 | 6-7pm ET | Featuring Rita Biagioli, Data Scientist
Ever wondered if all the work we do with data is doing more harm than good? Then join us on Wednesday, October 13th from 6:00-7:00pm ET, for a lecture on data ethics to explore the potential ethical pitfalls of working with data.
In the next “One Hour at Bootcamp” workshop, Rita Biagioli, Data Scientist at Metis, will walk students through how models can cause damage and how to prevent harm. By the end of his lecture, students will have a better sense of how to employ ethical data science in their practices and organizations.
Attendees of this workshop will be able to:
- Explain how a carefully balanced dataset can be used to train less biased models and to evaluate existing models.
- Answer questions about data science ethics with a rigorous approach
- Identify possible WMDs (Weapons of Math Destruction)
