The Ethics in Data Science conference kicked off last night where we heard about the importance and how we can make ethics a first class citizen in design thinking during Dr Matthew Beard, Fellow, The Ethics Centre’s presentation on “Can we prevent data ethics failures”. I hope curriculum builders begin to add ethics studies to their Masters of DS and AI courses to help equip students with the tools to think critically about the algorithms they are building.
