What motivates you in your daily work as a data expert?

AI Ethics is a new research field and one of the fastest growing fields in Machine Learning. It emerges from the numerous ethical concerns, vulnerabilities, and incidents raised by current AI development. I love how transdisciplinary the field is evolving. On the same day, one can work on a new Python library on XAI, while writing a philosophical paper on the socio-materiality of the pragmatist conception of ethics.

What does datacraft bring you?

I like to root my research on daily practices of data scientists, AI engineers, etc. By joining datacraft, I have the opportunity to get in touch with a very innovative data scientist community. Datacraft is a wonderful initiative to share our knowledge on AI practices, concerns on ethics, guidelines etc. This is a place where researchers and practitioners can work together, discuss their works and contribute to building better AI.
