Description
This course addresses one of the most important contemporary issues - responsible data use. The concept of responsible data is based on understanding the individual and societal collective duty to prioritise and respond to the ethical, legal and social challenges coming from the use of data. The key elements of the responsible data use - data privacy, data protection and data ethics - are discussed in details. Moreover, the main feature of the course is to bring all these three elements together and to discuss them in context of contemporary legal and technological environment as well as future development. This course will be offered jointly by IDS and DAD.
