You are invited to join RMDS’ first Ask The Expert Live virtual event featuring our expert guest Merve Hickok, founder of AIethicist and Data Ethics Instructor at University of Michigan School of Information. Merve will give an introduction to her area of expertise and research: all things that deal with AI & ethics, plus how those topics and issues impact you.
The event will take on the style of the popular “ask me anything” format, which means that audience engagement will be a huge part of this event! You will have the opportunity to ask our speaker questions on things like:
- Views on how AI impacts social justice; is there any regulation in sight?
- Her professional career path
- Are there any AI redlines?
- Advice on your own projects and AI questions
- Whatever other topics interest you!

This Research Methods and Data Science (RMDS) meetup group is devoted to make big data & AI useful, and to promote big data technologies. It is a meet-up group bringing together people from research methodology, data science, data professional services, AI and computing in the greater Los Angeles area.
The focus of the group is about utilizing big data & AI technologies to improve data analytics & research for social good, and to promote research methods and data science innovation. On a regular base, we run workshops on big data analytics that can be applied to model and visualize open data and other complicated big data sets. Also, we will organize special meetings to discuss special data science projects, as well as data science automation and augmentation.
