COMPUTER ethics, DATA science, COMPUTER scientists, CRITICISM, and COOPERATION
The authors discuss their thoughts on computing ethics, particularly the cause of establishing common ground between data scientists and critics of data scientists who raise concerns about an alleged lack of ethical awareness on the part of data scientists. The article discusses ethical concerns about artificial intelligence (AI), the broad nature of some critiques of data science, and efforts to create a cooperative collaboration between data scientists and their critics.
