On 15 September, the Responsible Data Science (RDS) initiative, a joint collaboration of expert researchers from 11 knowledge institutions across the Netherlands, hosts the first seminar in the context of the Responsible Data Science Seminar Series. The Academisch Medisch Centrum (AMC), Centrum Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI), Delft University of Technology (TUD), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), Leiden University (LU), Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), Radboud University Nijmegen (RU), Tilburg University (UvT), University of Amsterdam (UvA), VU Medical Center Amsterdam (VUmc), and VU University Amsterdam collaborate in RDS.
The RDS initiative is driven by the omnipresence of data making society increasingly dependent on data science. Despite its great potential, there are also many concerns on irresponsible data use. Unfair or biased conclusions, disclosure of private information, and non-transparent data use, may inhibit future data science applications.
