About Katharine Jarmul

Katharine Jarmul is a pythonista and founder of Kjamistan,
a data consulting company in Berlin, Germany.
She’s been using Python since 2008 to solve and create problems.
She helped form the first PyLadies chapter in Los Angeles in 2010,
and co-authored an O'Reilly book along with several video courses
on Python and data.

She enjoys following the latest developments
in machine learning, natural language processing and workflow automation
infrastructure and is generally chatty and crabby on Twitter,
where you can keep up with her latest shenanigans (@kjam).

The Keynote: If Ethics is not None
The history of computing, as it’s often covered in textbooks or talks,
remains primarily focused on a series of hardware advancements,
architectures, operating systems and software.

In this talk, we will instead explore the history of ethics in computing,
touching on the early days of computers in warfare and science,
leading up to ethical issues today such as Artificial Intelligence and privacy regulation.
