The Rise of the Algorithm and the Implications for Ethics in Data Science

Expert Panel: The Rise of the Algorithm and the Implications for Ethics in Data Science

Join us for this breakfast event (8.30am to 10.30 am) in association with the Analytics Institute where we’ll bring together perspectives from academia, media and industry to discuss the challenges of responsible data science in the age of the algorithm. Attendees should expect an 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.
