The massive generation and collection of data today is creating huge opportunities for businesses and institutions through Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. However, those opportunities also come with a responsibility and risk.

Data and AI can be used for good things, but its effects can also be harmful, either intentionally or as a non-desired side effect of some positive use. Decisions taken by AI products need to be fair and interpretable.

Are we living on a privacy time bomb?
Will the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook scandal change the data industry for good?
Will the data industry be a victim of its own success?
Is there a different, more sustainable, way forward for the data industry?
