As multiple data ethics frameworks get published, this edition of the DataIQ podcast considers how to embed them into an organisation, whether there are mathematical formulae to drive automation, and why automated decisions might need to be recorded via a data ethics black box.
Andrew Lynn, head of data at Unicef, has seen the NGO win awards for how it uses data and analytics, including the DMA Silver Award for GDPR Communication. DataIQ spoke to him about creating a governance-led data culture and the importance of data ethics, especially in the sensitive arena of child protection.
Adria Gascon, research fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, explains his work looking at how to define the parameters of privacy as mathematical concepts.
Professor Marina Jirotka of the University of Oxford explained the concept of a data ethics black box during the launch of a report, "Trust, transparency and tech", by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Data Analytics.
