Ethical Considerations in Data Visualization (February 10-17) back to top
An AUP alumna, Alex Phuong Nguyen is analytics program manager at Ulula, a Canadian stakeholder technology company. In addition to programme management, Alex leads efforts to derive values from data through machine learning. Prior to joining Ulula, Alex contributed to developing and implementing the data strategy and innovation agenda in the Executive Office of the UN Secretary-General in New York. Her background is in international human and labour rights. 

Data visualization is an important component of most data science projects, not only enabling better interpretation of the data, but also facilitating data scrubbing and exploration. People who design visualizations need to address questions related to what they should display and why, but also pay increased attention to how they should display it. This workshop explores how different visualization techniques may impact the information conveyed and introduces the concepts behind the Code of Ethics for Data Visualization Professionals. Students will be working on a small real-world project requiring them to apply the principles introduced during the workshop.
