The lack of computational reproducibility support and data ethics guidance is a major challenge for integrative knowledge infrastructure. This key area of activity for I-GUIDE involves supporting the process of decision-making around sharing data and data-driven research outcomes. These include issues of privacy, consent, equity, assessment of benefits and harms, transparency, and integrity in research practices and use of AI algorithms.
Geoethics is a central area of our Convergence Curriculum for Geospatial Data Science. Listen to I-GUIDE researcher Peter Darch explain why integrating this structural guidance for computational reproducibility and data ethics from the start is so important.
