Participation in SHAPE initiative on data science

I had the great opportunity to participate in a roundtable on data science organised by Prof Bridgette Wessels (University of Glasgow) and Prof Lesley McCara (University of Edinburgh) in the framework of SHAPE (Social Sciences, Humanities and the Art for People and the Economy). The goal of the event was to initiate a discussion about the use of data in nowadays world that included not only technological considerations (as it typically happens), but also contributions from social and human sciences. One of the main points made during the roundtable was that we need to educate data scientists to take into account ethics and Responsible Research Innovation in their work, a major challenge in an education system that tends to be highly specialistic.
