At the heart of both operations research and analytics, the key to all of the incredible research and applications, is data. Every day, O.R. and analytics professionals use data from sources around the world to provide valuable insight that is used to save lives, save money and solve problems.
However, with a steady news stream of data breaches or misuse of often personal information from trusted sources many of us use everyday, such as Facebook, Target, and even healthcare providers, these incidents are becoming part of a much larger conversation regarding data security and the ethical use of data.
In this episode, I am joined by Scott Nestler, professor at the Mendoza College of Business with the University of Notre Dame. Scott has been a strong advocate for the importance of ethics for the analytics profession, and was the driving force behind the Certified Analytics Professional Certification Program’s Code of Ethics.
