What is this session about?

A quick internet search for ‘data never lies’ will reveal follow-ups such as ‘or does it?’ or ‘but it misleads’. It is crucial to understand how the quality and nature of our data can affect the way that our analysis systems behave and impact our users and decision making. The reality is that almost all of our business-related data is contaminated and full of different types of bias that significantly damage our abilities to gain insights from the data that we have around us.

Join this workshop with our academic expert to help you navigate the wealth of data now available and identify how you can make sound judgements about the data you use.
