The Role of Ethics Part 2

Ethics is an important topic in data analytics, especially when making data-driven decisions. In this video Dr Adrian Gepp explains more.

Building on the last video, Adrian here continues to highlight the importance of ethics in analytics, especially with relation to graphical techniques.

Throughout this course we’ve already talked about what we need to think about when making good graphs, and here we’ve seen some examples of bad graphs. You’ve probably seen some bad misleading graphs outside of our examples. An excellent collection of real-life examples can be found here and I’d encourage everyone to have a look through them.

If you can think of or have seen any examples of bad graphs before you can share them with everyone here on our Padlet.
