Australia, we need to talk about data ethics

If Weapons of Math Destruction shows how data models can be bad, that still leaves us with the question of how to tell the good from the bad, and how to make judgements about what might count as good. This post sets out some potential ethical criteria to help data scientists – and even more importantly, those who commission and use data science – to make good decisions. There are some strong parallels with Jeni Tennison’s talk on countering bias in data, perhaps not surprisingly given a common background in ODI.
