How do companies move past mere compliance and focus on doing the right thing? Do companies need data stewards and ethicists? How are business, technology, and humanities blending? In this episode of IBM thinkLeaders podcast, we are joined by Michael Brent (Data Ethics Officer at Enigma Technologies) & Jennifer Fischer (AI Ethicist and Associate Professor at Felician University). We talk about going from STEM to STEAM, understanding data practices and governance, and the impact that GDPR is having on American companies. We also get into how we can be proactive with data practices, as opposed to reactive with regulation. Connect with us @IBMthinkLeaders “What is this product going to do? Who will it serve and what results will it deliver to them? That's a way to start thinking about the ethics of what we should be building and how we should be using this information.” -Michael Brent, Data Ethics Officer at Enigma Technologies “What I've seen is...a challenge around the knowledge and awareness and transparency that goes along with providing a rich data governance set without it being so burdensome that then you're slowing down your delivery teams.” -Jennifer Fischer, AI Ethicist and Associate Professor at Felician University BIOS Michael Brent is the Data Ethics Officer at Enigma Technologies in New York City, and a Co-founding Faculty Member of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research.
