3 Sessions on Responsible AI You Won’t Want to Miss At ODSC West 2021 

The first-ever hybrid Open Data Science Conference (ODSC) West event is next week and our team can’t wait to join hundreds of other data scientists to learn and grow! ICYMI: ODSC West is the leading community-focused event for machine learning, data science, deep learning, responsible AI, and more. It’s happening Nov 16-18, 2021 and will feature both in-person and virtual sessions led by experts in the data science industry. 

This year, not only is our team attending and presenting at the event, but Pandata is also the ODSC West Diversity & Inclusion Partner.

With a passion for improving diversity in the data science workplace and for designing equally unbiased Trusted AI solutions, we thought it only fitting to highlight a few of this year’s sessions that will focus on responsible AI

A Framework for Evaluating Privacy-Preserving Data Infrastructure for Collaboration

Following the pandemic, many businesses quickly realized a need for serious digital transformation efforts in order to survive long-term. In fact, IDC estimates that by 2023, a direct-to-digital transformation investment will approach $7 trillion.
The foundation of these efforts? Strong first-party data that preserves user privacy.

As part of the AI X Summit track at ODSC West 2021, David Gilmore, head of privacy technology solutions at LiveRamp, will share tips to keep private data safe and useful for businesses, as well as:

  • How data collaboration can drive an institution’s data infrastructure and strategy forward. 
  • How data partnerships manifest in various use cases and specific examples, across industries. 
  • Six key considerations to preserve privacy and uphold performance.
