Ethics, Observational Platforms, Mathematics, and Fundamental Rights
The GDPR recognizes that individual control alone is not enough to assure the full range of fundamental rights in play as data is originated, processed, and decisions are made based on the processing of that data. The GDPR requires all the elements of accountability. This means organisations that use data governed by something other than consent must make a decisions based on right and wrong, and this takes us to ethics. This session, in very practical terms will begin the discussion of the ethics that are in play, how processing may be measured against those ethics, how the soundness of the process may be made visible to stakeholders, and how regulators might oversee.
