Data Ethics Training – All You Need to Know

Data Ethics Training – All You Need to Know2021-02-03T15:20:21+00:00

Project Description

Course Overview

In a perfect world, legislation and oversight would progress hand in hand with innovation, but we all know that this is far from the truth. This one-day Data Ethics course explores the ethical considerations around the use, collection, and utilisation of data from a wider perspective. Covering aspects such as information sharing, discrimination and bias in artificial intelligence and algorithms; the rights of the individual and the group and the ethical considerations in the development, collection, and usage of data. Actions taken with good intentions can still be vastly unethical, so this course is designed to inform you of not just the risks but the questions to ask yourself to find a balance.
