When good algorithms go bad…

I recently spoke on a panel at Strata called ‘When good algorithms go bad’, organised by the good people at DataKind and sponsored by Pivotal Labs and O’Reilly Media. My co-panellists were Madeleine Greenhalgh (Cabinet Office), Shahzia Holtom (Pivotal Labs), and Hetan Shah (Royal Statistical Society), with Duncan Ross (DataKind) chairing what was a very stimulating discussion about the ethics of data science.

I won’t attempt to summarise the excellent contributions of the other speakers (and the audience), but here are some relevant (I hope!) references for those interested in delving further into some of the topics raised:

Many thanks to DataKind UK for organising and inviting me!
