About this talk
Anyone working with AI needs to consider the ethics and governance of their data and the models they build. But there are so many ‘ethical frameworks’ out there, many with ambiguous and impractical statements, that it is difficult to know how to approach the issue or even where to start. In this webinar, Andrew Burgess, author, AI strategist, and qualified data ethics facilitator will take you through a practical AI and data ethics approach using the Open Data Institute’s Data Ethics Canvas. Using real-life examples, Andrew will explain the different risks associated with AI and how they can be mitigated. Andrew will be joined by Simone Larsson from Dataiku, who will take you through the new governance tools available in the latest version of DSS.
A management consultant, author, and speaker with over 25 years of experience, Andrew is considered an authority on innovative and disruptive technologies, including Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation. He is regularly invited to speak at conferences on these subjects. He is the author of ‘The Executive Guide to Artificial Intelligence (Palgrave MacMillan, 2018), Visiting Senior Fellow in AI and RPA at Loughborough University, and Expert-in-Residence for AI at Imperial College’s Enterprise Lab. He is a prolific writer on the ‘future of work’ and is frequently published in industry magazines and blogs.

Finding patterns and matching strategies are well-known NLP procedures to extract information from text.
Spark NLP library has two annotators that can use these techniques to extract relevant information or recognize entities of interest in large-scale environments when dealing with lots of documents from medical records, web pages, or data gathered from social media.
In this talk, we will see how to retrieve the information we are looking for by using the following annotators:
- Entity Ruler, an annotator available in open-source Spark NLP.
- Contextual Parser, an annotator available only in Spark NLP for Healthcare.
- In addition, we will enumerate use cases where we can apply these annotators.
After this webinar, you will know when to use a rule approach to extract information from your data and the best way to set the available parameters in these annotators.

Every organization in the US is at risk from cyber threats from Russia, warned the US Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday, February 22. This warning comes in response to the escalation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which includes boots-on-the-ground tactics as well as cyber-attacks.
Russian cyber operations have targeted Ukraine with destabilization efforts for years, by way of infrastructure attacks, influence operations, website defacement, and attacks on Ukrainian banks and military networks.
US organizations find themselves potential targets for cyber attacks as Russia responds to sanctions the US imposed on Russia for violating international law. According to the DHS, “Russia maintains a range of offensive cyber tools that it could employ against US networks—from low-level denials-of-service to destructive attacks targeting critical infrastructure.”
Given all the fast-moving pieces involved, what exactly is the threat from Russia?
In this urgent webcast, top cybersecurity experts Tim Conway, Kevin Holvoet, Rob Lee, and Jake Williams will give an overview of current Russian Threat Actor capabilities, discuss critical infrastructure attacks on Ukraine, and possible escalation spillover into the EU and/or the US. Join us to get the answers to the key questions surrounding this conflict.
Register now and join us to get answers to key questions surrounding this conflict and its implications on your cybersecurity strategy.
