THE STORY

Following the success of the diSummit a team has initiated the theme of this meetup where data and ethics will be discussed. We hope this is only the first of a series on this important topic.

First discussions at diSummit included presentation by Pierre-Nicolas (https://www.linkedin.com/in/pnschwab/) on his work on ethical recommendation systems at RTBF (see here (http://www.intotheminds.com/blog/en/data-innovation-summit-2017-big-data-for-greater-good/)).
