Non-ableist data science: Exploring Data Science and Inclusion
Data science is increasingly important in producing knowledge and technologies that impact us daily. How we analyze data, design analysis tools, deploy algorithmic systems, and publish data-driven conclusions matters to real lives. When data science ignores variations and disparities in the human experience, it can bias decision-making and outcomes that negatively affect people with disabilities. In this hands-on workshop, we explore how data science can be made inclusive of practitioners and consumers of all abilities.
