  • Understanding the ethical implications of these matters helps businesses and individuals form decisions aligned with their (cultural) values

What you will learn:

  • Where and how biases occur throughout the lifecycle of a ML product and how they can be addressed
  • How fairness is quantified in a Machine Learning environment
  • What ethical standards and regulations are being developed and applied at the moment

For whom is it important:

  • People who implement and invent data(-driven) products
  • Data Engineers/Scientists, ML Engineers
  • CTOs looking to improve or start the principles of their data strategy
