Knowledge Integration and Project Planning: Data and Artificial Intelligence Ethics (2023-24)


Knowledge Integration and Project Planning: Data and Artificial Intelligence Ethics (2023-24)

Hello and welcome to my blog! 

My name is Nathan and I am a postgraduate student at the University of Edinburgh – Edinburgh Futures Institute – studying an MSc in Data and AI Ethics. This blog is designed, as part of a module on the course, to be a space for me to share my journey through this fascinating and challenging field. 

Data and AI ethics is an interdisciplinary field that draws from a plethora of disciplines, to name a few; philosophy, law and data science / programming. The field explores the ethical, social, and legal implications of data-driven technologies and artificial intelligence. It covers topics such as privacy, fairness, accountability, transparency, governance, and social justice, among others. As a student of this field, I am interested in how data and AI can be used for good, but also aware of the potential risks and harms they can cause.

In this blog, I will share some of my insights and reflections on the various aspects of data and AI ethics that I encounter along the way, as well as the development of my research project from ideation to completion. I hope that this blog will be informative and engaging for anyone who is interested in this topic. I also welcome your feedback and comments, as I believe that dialogue and collaboration are essential for co-creation to take place.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you enjoy reading it!
