Data-driven decisions: Encouraging the good and avoiding the bad

7 Oct 2021
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Mark Durkee, Centre for Data Ethics & Innovation

Innovation with data-driven technology is changing the way that organisations make decisions. This offers some real opportunities, but also creates challenges. In this talk we’ll explore some of the ways that organisations, regulators and others can work together to make sure that this technology is used fairly and safely.

He leads a portfolio of work including CDEI’s Review into Bias in Algorithmic Decision-Making published last year.
