AI, Ethics, and Society

Guest Speaker Jacob Metcalf, PhD

Join us for our next WiseTalk on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 2pm PT/5pm ET as Sue hosts Jake Metcalf, a consultant and scholar specializing in data and technology ethics.

Jake is passionate about helping people understand how seemingly small decisions about data technologies can have significant and disparate consequences in society. His academic background is in applied ethics, particularly in science and technology, and his scholarship in data ethics is recognized as influencing this nascent field, particularly around issues of research ethics policy and practice in academia and business. He lives amongst the redwoods of the Santa Cruz mountains, where he fulfills his lifelong dream of running a philosophy business from a converted barn.

This month Jake and Sue will discuss:

  • Why data responsibility is a competitive advantage
  • How to develop your capacity for ethics
  • How to assess and implement data ethics
