Afternoon Keynote: Creating a data ethics framework to build trust in the age of AI

Traditional data governance needs to evolve to keep up with the pace of technology and rules on privacy and consent.  Having a data ethics framework and set of standards in place to ensure data is protected whilst not stifling data innovation initiatives, is becoming critical to data strategy.  Lorraine will share practical insight into how to set up a data ethics framework based on her work at HSBC.

Panel: Unlocking value – Laying the foundations for smart analytics

Every firm aspires to use the best new technologies to win more business, operate more efficiently or better support their existing clients. It’s a changing data landscape but whether your goal is to harness smart analytics or implement wholesale machine learning or make use of cutting edge alternative data sources, there are some fundamental capabilities that need to be in place.

How do you ensure your firm can make best use of investments in new data and data technology? How can you scale promising POC’s into a true enterprise asset? What does a well evolved analytics architecture look like? How do you marry process and policy with the right tools to ensure control and data quality? How do you identify the right components and decide between competing products?
