Wednesday 06 November 2019, 01:00pm - 04:00pm

Location Manchester Metropolitan University Business School Lecture Theatre G.27 All Saints Manchester M15 6BH

About the event:

Hosted jointly by Manchester Metropolitan University and the Royal Statistical Society, and is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2019
This event aims to discuss and disseminate research around how human based analytics and AI can be developed to support business and social decision-making.

The existing techniques of these methods are mostly based on scientific aspects. However, social science and business involve human beings, cultures, and societies. There is a challenge to integrate human feelings, social responsibilities, and ethics into such advanced technologies. Therefore, at this event we aim to explore these challenges and suggest possible solutions.
