- First National Conference on Big Data Ethics, Law, and Policy
- MORNING: Wilson Hall 402; AFTERNOON – Lower West Room of the Rotunda
- Employees Faculty Students
- Sponsored by Data Sciences Institute and the Center for Big Data Ethics, Law, and Policy
The challenges and opportunities of big data derive from the massive amounts of data being collected, aggregated, and processed as well as the techniques used for the processing (data analytics). How will big data change science and the nature of knowledge? How will it affect healthcare, transportation, business, etc.?
Who, if anyone, owns data? Is there a threat to privacy when personal data is buried in massive, processed data? What are the value-biases built into particular analytics? Are there categories that should never be used in analyzing personal data? Should some data be publicly available to all researchers? Public discussion, legal analysis and decisions, and policy choices will powerfully shape the development and use of the tools, techniques, knowledge, and applications of new data sciences. This conference will be devoted to discussion of the big ethical, legal, and policy issues around big data.
