About the Event :

Hello everyone,

DataKind UK's Ethics Commitee is ending the year with a data ethics book club on the 1st of December! We will be discussing Viriginia Eubanks' Automating Inequality: How High-Tech Tools Profile, Police and Punish the Poor. It's a classic in this field!

All welcome!

And if you'd like to facilitate one of the groups (usually 5-8 people), we'd love to have you! Please email Contact@datakind.org.uk about this.

*FAQs*

Why are we doing this?

There's a lot of good writing out there and one of the most important principles (even in our own ethical principles) is to discuss and debate the ethical questions.

We hope this will help people gain the tools they need to think about this in their jobs or in DataKind projects, or in encountering algorithmic tools in their everyday life. But if all you get out of it is some friendly discussion over a coffee or beer, that works too :-)

Do I need to be a data scientist to participate?

Nope. We'll have a mix of technical and non-technical reading material. The aim is to think about data science in a context of ethical impacts and consequences - and that affects everybody!

I have a brilliant idea for reading material/a theme! Who do I tell?

We love suggestions! Tell us at contact@datakind.org.uk
