Data-driven and algorithmic systems increasingly underpin many decision-making systems, shaping where law enforcement are stationed and what news you are shown on social media. In this talk, danah boyd, founder and president of Data & Society, will unpack some of the unique cultural challenges presented by “big data” and machine learning, raising critical questions about fairness and accountability. The event is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and co-sponsored by the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science and Student Senate.
