Hazard: Danger Of Misuse#
There is a danger of misusing the algorithm, technology, or data collected as part of this work.
Example 1: Using statistical methods to do impossible tasks, like predicting future human behaviour.
Example 2: The collection of a large data set about identifiable individuals, which could be hacked, or used for purposes other than what it was collected for.
Example 3: Misinterpreting statistical methods or failing to appreciate their limitations, for example assuming that psychometrics will accurately or definitively predict future human behaviour.
Write clear instructions about in what circumstances the algorithm/technology will work or give valid answers and present these wherever the work is presented.
If work is piloted outside of its original context, it must be re-tested.
Follow data governance guidelines.
