Data Ethics Club meeting 20-10-21, 1pm-2pm UK time#
You’re welcome to join us for our next Data Ethics Club meeting on Wednesday the 20th October at 1pm-2pm UK time. You don’t need to register, just pop in. This time we’re going to watch/read Towards decolonising computational sciences which is a paper by Abeba Birhane and Olivia Guest - relevant to this week’s (UK) headlines and for UK Black History Month.
There will be time to talk about whatever we like, relating to the paper, but here are some specific questions to think about while you’re reading.
Q1: What does it mean to decolonise something?
Q2: What did you find the most and least persuading argument in this paper?
Q3: What could you/your organisation do to decolonise data science/data analysis/computer science? (If it’s not relevant to your role, then what would you do as a data scientist?)
