Education in Data Science
Tilburg University is one of the founding partners of the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS). TILT lecturers are currently involved in the coordination and teaching of multiple data science programs. Through its input, TILT aims to infuse the courses with a strong legal and ethical foundation that will stay with data science students throughout the rest of their careers.
Most data science students do not have a legal or ethical background. However, over the course of their careers, they will inevitably face circumstances in which they will benefit from an understanding and practical knowledge of legal and ethical principles. Therefore, TILT lecturers seek to provide data science students with a better understanding and awareness of the legal and ethical challenges that they may face and their own moral obligations within this context. Given that students will inevitably be engaged in projects which influence human behavior, we at TILT, wish for students to engage in a way which takes societal needs into account, while understanding the need for legal and ethical considerations.
