How can data science and artificial intelligence be used for the good of society – and what happens when they aren’t? In this thought-provoking session, we’ll explore the tricky interplay between technological advances, desired business outcomes, and the perceived value to both organisations and individuals. We’ll look at some companies that are exemplars of fair play, transparency and privacy, as well as some that push the boundaries for their own gain. Lastly, you’ll be introduced to transferrable best practices which can provide a solid foundation for the ethical use of data in your own environment.
