Ethics in Computational Research

N8 CIR is launching a series of workshops exploring ethics in computational research

One of the key findings of the training surveys that we ran last year was a recognition that researchers wanted to know more about the ethics, especially how they related to computational research and emerging technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Over the last few months we have been speaking to specialists in these areas to develop a series of workshops to help address these concerns.

The first of these three sessions will take place on Thursday 28 October from 10am - 12 noon. The following sessions will be on 4 &11 November, again from 10am-12 noon.

Ethics in Computational Research - Introduction
Thursday 28 October 2021, 10am - 12 noon
This session, led by Niall O'Loughlin and Catherine Brewer, will offer an overview of ethics, integrity, and Responsible Research & Innovation.
