Presentation: Data science needs law

Discussions around artificial intelligence (AI), data science, machine learning, text and data mining (TDM), etc. have made things so that everyone most are aware that access to data is imperative for these activities. In this regard, the role of legal frameworks such as copyright law, data protection laws and contract law in regulating and structuring data access is significant. The Data Science for Social Impact, a research lab at the University of Pretoria invited Dr Chijioke Okorie to speak at its seminar series and she used the opportunity to explore, amongst other things, the role that these legal frameworks play in facilitating or restricting data access within the African continent.

Full report of Dr Okorie’s presentation is available on The IPKat Blog and the video recording may be assessed on YouTube.
