How This Works
The Data Science Ethos is made up of three important components: the Lenses, the Stages, and the Case Studies. If you are unfamiliar with the Data Science Ethos, take a moment to orient yourself to the three components of the tool.
1. Understand the Lenses
The lenses offer a structured approach to thinking about the ethical components at each stage of the data science lifecycle. Learn about the lenses to help contextualize the research stages.
2. Review the Stages
Review the Research Lifecycle Stages - a familiar model for the data science research process. At each stage, we examine how the Lenses focus our attention on the social, human, and moral impacts and implications of research.
3. Explore the Case Studies
Put the Lenses and Stages together with real-world research projects showing how social questions interact with the work of a data scientist. They draw attention to the broader social structural issues in data science projects while representing the ethical questions that can emerge during project development.
