Bhavika Chavda ’21, M.P.S. Data Science joins us for this episode of UMBC’s Mic’d Up and shares her experience with entering into the data science world and working with an ethical lens.
She shared, “As data scientists, we have a lot of responsibility on us. We make or break platforms. We can make people’s lives by using the data and we can break their lives by using their data incorrectly. At UMBC, they train us how not to take advantage of the data. ? Data science is not just about the data, but it’s also about understanding human emotions along with the data. That’s how we can make informed decisions.”
