Thread: #Ableism
It is 'how-to-dress-for-academic-job-talks' season & many have pointed out the race/class/gender dimensions of these standards, but it's worth remembering that these standards need to be examined through the lens of disability, which is a part of 'diversity'...1/
...and if we claim are seriously interested in inclusivity/diversity in academia, we need to think about disability in how we design interviews & assess candidates.
Think about the recommended formal suits.
Uncomfortable, expensive & difficult to pull together on a budget. 2/
But, also, clipping an insulin pump or other medical equipment inside a suit can be a little difficult for some. If a suit appears ill-fitting, maybe we should check/assess our initial judgements. Additionally, many #disabled people also have sensory issues with some fabrics. 3/

On this #GlobalAccessibilityAwarenessDay, inspired to hear @lynnekjolso talk about #Inclusivity @Microsoft. One of the best keynotes I've attended i recent years!

Being #inclusive is such a win-win, yet many businesses don't pay enough attention.

#GAAD @CdnMarketing #CMAevents
So many great takeaways from the session.

"#Diversity is I am different.
#Inclusion is I matter."

~Kathleen Hall, CVP Brand, Advertising and Research @Microsoft
"Inclusive culture drives innovation.
Inclusive products remove barriers.
Inclusive #marketing resonates."

Great question Wojtek and thanks for the chance to answer Sorry it'll need a (massive - take a toilet break, grab a cuppa and a comfy chair) threaded response as my tweet kept growing !! 👇👇
So #SAtSD is an attempt to create a shared collaborative approach to designing public services in Scotland. We are co-producing the approach based on collective thinking and actions across orgs and sectors that design and / or deliver public services in Scotland.
That currently includes many people and service design champions from @scotgov @DigitalOfficeLG, various parts NHS in Scotland, as well as many different public bodies, local authorities, private and third sector orgs.

Thread: Building an ethical foundation for the AI-driven future @PeriscopeData
First question: What value do you bring to your org. as a data professional? #techskills #businessoutcomes -- likely responses. Then Facebook & #unintendedoutcomes #ODSCWest
Industry starting to confront #ethics in terms of daily applications of #AI algorithms. #Bias based on data - in the case of courts, potentially hundreds of years of biased decisions as part of the training set.
"I'm just an engineer" not an appropriate response. People using #AI products might not understand what or how decisions and predictions are being made, but will be making real world decisions based on them. YOU and your team might be the only ones who do.

#Tech in #Farming has been changing the world since the invention of the wheel millenniums ago. Since then, all new innovations either make crops easier to #harvest, more bountiful shorter farming time and more resilient and healthier crops.

Want to know what #tech is hot now?
#Hydroponics has been a thing for a while now while #urbanfarming is still a growing idea. Among #tech that are being used in #farming are drones, #IoT and use of data analytics to ensure the precise farming.

While some may not be tangible but they result to exponential results!
