The World Ethical Data Forum is the only event in the world that embraces the full range of interrelated issues around the use and future of data.


The World Ethical Data Forum is the leading event for impartial and balanced exploration of the urgent ethical and practical questions around the use and future of data.


By addressing these concerns and encouraging the collaboration of apparently competing worlds, from technology and big business, government and security agencies, policy makers and the media, to human rights lawyers, whistleblowers, and privacy and transparency advocates, the World Ethical Data Forum is offering a unique and crucial perspective for the future.


Encouraging technological and intellectual innovation and collaboration between the worlds of research, business, media, government and investment, and emphasising the quality and integrity of the human lives they ground, the World Ethical Data Forum invites participants to enter and define the most crucial discussion of our time.

From the methods and techniques that generate the granular data used by scientists, statisticians and developers to the narratives composed by the media and governments which define them, the forum examines the opportunities and problems arising from the development of technologies that continue to open unprecedented possibilities for knowledge and influence.


This year, Women in AI has partnered with Word Ethical Data Foundation in World Ethical Data Forum. Dr. Alessandra Sala, President of Women in AI and Sr Director of AI and Data Science at Shutterstock, is one of the speakers at World Ethical Data Forum (WEDF).

‘WEDF is guiding the discussion on the ethical use of data to prevent violations of fundamental rights in the digital world”.
