SoBigData promotes an ethical approach to data science.

We know that digital records may contain potentially sensitive information on personal activities or content protected by intellectual property rights, so we have special policies for the collection and analysis of large-scale datasets.
We collect and analyse data in an ethical manner by-design and implement privacy enhancing tools. We work towards ensuring its analyses are also correct, fair and non-discriminatory.

We developed an online course in order to share with the community these basic elements about ethics, data protection, and intellectual property law.
Visit the website of the FAIR (First Aid for Responsible Data Scientists by SoBigData) and enjoy our MOOC aimed at:

  • Researchers, who want to become more aware of ethical issues
  • Companies, which want to contribute to our community
  • Students, who are curious about ethics, privacy and law
