Virtual Roundtable: Translating Data Science, Bias in Data Sets and Analytics

edited.jpg

Ensuring the proper curation and integrity of data from the earliest stages of collection is absolutely essential. For the quality of downstream results to be trusted, bias must be minimized and accounted for through thoughtful quality control methodologies. As well, thoughtful considerations need to be made as to what data should be used in an analytics process, as to not create preemptive bias for a certain result. Join us as we explore how to best manage these critical concerns.

Speakers:
Hareesh Chandrupatla, Chief Data Scientist, Anjin Analytics
Scott Lett, Ph.D., Consulting Data Detective, Holistic Mathematics

As we continue forward in the age of digital information, the risks to personal privacy and security will only continue to increase. As more technologies provide opportunities for the misuse and release of information, ensuring proper protocols for the anonymization and thoughtful handling of data is paramount. There have been recent examples that question responsible data ownership and security, which have changed the public’s perception of personal data collection. If we are to innovate we must take take great care to protect the individual along the way.
