The BIG Data Ethics Cheat Sheet

[Note: completely re-done due to all the updates I’ve made over time.]

This post presents a limited summary of the data ethics field as I see it at the moment. I break it down into parts: People, Organisations/Applications, Issues, and Case Studies. With each item I provide a link for further information. This page will change often! (25Jun=v.55)
