Naomi CederBall of confusion: the world, data, and ethics
The amount of data being captured and stored in the world continues to increase exponentially, but it seems fair to say that even with 5 times as much data as we had just 5 years ago, we're no closer to solving the issues of inclusion, transparency, fairness, and equality. On the contrary, data and AI are often being used in ways that are opaque and biased, even deliberately fraudulent, deceptive and destructive. As we face the challenges of this ``ball of confusion`` what role should ethics play?

It is an undisputed fact that Python's success in the world of data owes much to the development of foundational tools such as NumPy, SciPy, and Notebooks. However, what actually happened before all of that? What were scientists even thinking? Or smoking? Why Python in the first place? How did we end up here?

What to Expect

The PyData Global Online Conference is where users, contributors, and newcomers can share experiences to learn from one another and grow together. PyData provides a virtual forum for the international community of users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The global PyData network promotes discussion of best practices, new approaches, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization.

This three-day online event consists of talks, tutorials, and discussions to bring attendees the latest project features along with cutting edge use cases.

The time span of the conference stretches beyond any single time zone, reflecting the global nature of our community. To accommodate our attendees, each session will be recorded and made available to attendees the following day. Following the Conference, all recordings will be posted to the PyData YouTube channel.
