Ethics workshop @ Turing
We are hosting a workshop at the Alan Turing Institute on 24 May: “Towards Smarter Research Ethics in Data Science” (details here).
We are aiming to bring together people from academia, industry and major UK funding bodies (EPSRC, ESRC, Dstl, NCSC etc.) to talk about research ethics: not so much “what is ethical” but “what are the processes you have in place for making decisions about what research you will or will not do.” Anecdotal evidence suggests most organisations are struggling to incorporate this into existing systems, so questions related to cyber security and data science are only being addressed piecemeal. We’d like to see if maybe we could work together to develop something useful together.
