An Irish Cambridge Analytica? Read Professor Alan Smeaton's opinion
Professor Alan Smeaton has written an opinion article entitled, An Irish Cambridge Analytica? Not if we get our ethics in order, which explores the ethical role and responsibilities of universities when it comes to data research and analysis. He says, "Irish universities can, and I believe, will work together to create a code of ethics for data research, which has the potential to be a lodestar for a sector badly in need of a guiding light." You can read the article on RTE's Brainstorm here.
Prof Smeaton was also on Today with Seán O'Rourke on RTE Radio 1 discussing this issue. You can listen in here.
