#8 - Ethics In Data Science

Oct 30, 2019, 05:00 AM
For Episode #8 of the One Zero One podcast, Version 1, in association with the Analytics Institute, brought together perspectives from academia, media and industry to discuss the challenges of responsible data science in the age of the algorithm. This podcast was recorded live during the interactive event with live polling and Q&A technology.

The role of Data Science in today’s technology driven world impacts a range of industries from the health sector to financial services, to developing smart cities and transportation. Although the benefits of Data Science have become seemingly clear and its impact noted across said environments, the dangers of data science without ethical considerations is equally apparent — whether it be the protection of personal data, bias in automated decision-making, the apparent elimination of free choice in psychographics or the social impacts of automation.

Ronan Laffan, Head of Advisory Services, Version 1 hosted this episode, the expert panel for the discussion featured:

  • Dr Joan Cahill, Centre for Innovative Human Systems, Trinity College Dublin
  • Dr. Katherine O’Keefe, Chief Ethicist, Castlebridge
  • Niall O’Neil, Chief Strategy Officer, OneView Healthcare
  • Garvan Callan, Financial Services Transformation Advisor, OneZero1
