What Does Responsible Data Science Mean?
This year's Symposium featured keynote speaker Phil Bourne, director of the University of Virginia’s Data Science Institute and acting dean of the School of Data Science. This talk invited the audience to think about what we can learn about responsibility from genomics as we perform data science for the public good, and how openness, reproducibility, etc. can lead to responsible data science across all domains.
This year's Symposium also featured keynote speaker Ron Jarmin, deputy director and chief operating officer of the U.S. Census Bureau. He spoke about the 2020 Census and it's continual evolvement to better suit the needs of our country. The Data Science for the Public Good Annual Symposium is a showcase for researchers across the country, including the Institute's DSPG Young Scholars.
