DEBIZ (Exam DEB-110): Data Ethics for Business Professionals
6 hours instructional time
Content is designed to be presented as a full day class, or in three 90-minute sessions by lesson.
The power of extracting value from data utilizing Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Machine Learning exposes the learning differences between humans and machines. Humans can apply ethical principles throughout the decision-making process to avoid discrimination, societal harm, and marginalization to maintain and even enhance acceptable norms. Machines make decisions autonomously. So how do we apply ethical principles to data driven technology? This course provides business professionals and consumers of technology core concepts of ethical principles, how they can be applied to emerging data driven technologies and the impact to an organization which ignores ethical use of technology.
