AFLSE Washington, DC: Data governance challenges at a time of artificial intelligence


Artificial intelligence software systems draw heavily on large-scale, high-quality data sets for their operation.  This makes the data governance and management challenges faced by modern organizations become even more complex as they need to consider questions of privacy, intellectual property rights and business value.


In this talk LSE Professor Edgar Whitley will reflect on some of the latest issues and perspectives on this rapidly evolving topic drawing on experiences from both sides of the pond.
