Being a data professional: give voice to value in a data driven society
In November 2020 David published a paper in the journal, AI and Ethics, titled, Being a data professional: give voice to value in a data driven society, co-authored with Prof. Don Gotterbarn.
Abstract: Data Analytics needs to have ethical standards. There are numerous examples of why this is so, and the paper cites four particularly egregious ones. The paper offers both reasons why such standards are currently missing or inadequate, and how they might best be introduced, or refined. Some Codes of Ethics, such as the Software Engineering Code of Ethics and Professional Practice, the ACM and IFIP Codes of Ethics, and the Web Analyst’s Code of Ethics are discussed, compared, and contrasted. The paper offers a comparative study, to help inform the process of the drawing up of guidelines where it is best undertaken, within the profession itself.
