BDA Member meeting on ‘Ethics in Data Science’

On 30 November, Big Data Alliance hosted a member meeting on ‘Ethics in Data Science’.

The event was attended by almost 60 people from academia and industry who listened to keynotes about the Ethics of Computing and how to avoid unfair conclusions even if they are true.

After a brief session where the results of the BDA in past months were discussed, the program shifted towards the presentations.
