AI and Ethics in the Data Revolution

Featuring: Neta Iser

Event Sponsor: Ascendum

Event Link:


Artificial Intelligence is touching almost every industry and vertical in our lives. We are part of the data revolution: the technology to collect, store, process and analyze all of the data we want to.

But oversight and laws will never move as fast as technology. It’s our responsibility to understand proper ethics and the ethics of data. The discussion will explore the importance of data ethics in the rapidly accelerating technology revolution.

Key takeaways include:

  • Learn the concepts of ethics and how it applies to data
  • Understanding bias: human biases, biases of machines and bias in data processing
  • Best practices to remove/handle bias

In high school, Neta built her first software program to assist her mother, a principal at her school, in automating class scheduling for the students.

In 2016, Neta left Israel and moved to Dayton, Ohio where she joined Krush Technologies in a leadership role as the head of the Data Systems Team (DBAs and Data Engineers). She was later promoted to the Director of Data Services and Business Intelligence where she ensured the data infrastructure was stable and performing, while providing critical, in-depth insights to the executive management.
