About the ISBA 2023

The ISBA 2023 brings together international researchers, practitioners,
policymakers, and ethicists to discuss the crucial issues that arise at the
intersection of data science, the life sciences, artificial intelligence
(AI), and society. As these fields continue to advance rapidly, it is
essential to address the policy and ethical challenges they pose to ensure
responsible and beneficial outcomes for individuals and society as a whole.
This workshop will examine the ways in which new data and AI technologies
are developed, introduced, and implemented in the life sciences, industry,
and society. It will give particular attention to a focus on economics and
the advancement of the life sciences and their impact on health, the
environment, and society. The sessions will explore how human, animal, and
plant (organic) specimens and data are collected, processed, and used by
science, industry, and government to address the needs of our societies.
The role of various ML and AI models, their implementation, and their
impact will be considered within the development of legal structures,
policy, and governance models for new technologies, the life sciences,
data, and AI. The workshop will examine how we can support the development
of genomics, multi-omics, and the life sciences using policy and ethics to
empower, not only our economies and healthcare systems, but also citizens
by creating healthier and more harmonised societies.


The primary objective of the workshop is to foster interdisciplinary
dialogue that encourages meaningful discussions and collaborations among
experts from diverse disciplines engaged with data science, the life
sciences, AI, policy making, and ethics. The following aims support this
primary objective:

   - Within the context of open science and new emerging technologies, the
   workshop will investigate the policy implications and considerations
   arising from the use of data science, the life sciences, and AI
   applications and their impact on society.
   - The seminar will address the ethical challenges posed by the
   development and deployment of data science, life sciences, AI technologies
   and applications, and consider ethical frameworks for responsible
   - The seminar will promote responsible practices that foster the
   adoption of responsible frameworks and conduct in data science, life
   sciences, and AI to safeguard privacy, equity, fairness, transparency, and
   - The seminar will facilitate knowledge exchange by providing a platform
   for participants to share their research findings, best practices, case
   studies, and experiences related to policy and ethics in the intersecting
   - The seminar will examine pathways and methodologies for the
   development of state-of-the-art platforms for education and expertise
   development in ethics and governance to meet the needs of academia,
   industry, government agencies, and NGOs in developing young leadership for
   our digital societies.
