Ethical Perspectives on Personal Data and Automated Decision Making (Presentation)
by Dr Steven Finlay.
My name is Steven Finlay. I’m head of Analytics at a company called HML.
You have probably never heard of HML – but it’s Europes largest mortgage outsourcing provider, based in Skipton, Yorkshire. HML is part of the Computershare Group, which employs over 15,000 people at several sites around the world. We specialize in providing the infrastructure to support residential mortgage portfolios from origination through to debt recovery. We currently manage more than £35 billion assets for our customers. Prior to this role I worked for a number of organizations including UK Government and Experian.
By trade I’m a geek/data scientist. For the last 20 years I’ve spent most of my time building or designing decision making systems based around predictive analytics, but around 10-11 years ago I began to get interested in some of the ethical aspects what I was doing.
Over time this has developed in to an approach to how I think about data and the how I advise others on the use that data, given its nature.
A lot of what you are going to hear today is aligned some of the material in my latest book: Predictive analytics, Data Mining and Big data. Myths, misconceptions and Methods, Which will be published by Palgrave Macmillan in the next few weeks.
