Speaker Bennett BordEN

Live WEBINAR session

Analytic models are playing an increasing role in the development, delivery and availability of goods and services. Who gets access to which goods or services and at what price are increasingly influenced by algorithms.  This may not matter when we’re talking about a $0.25 coupon for a candy bar, but what about public goods and services like education, healthcare, and energy distribution? What about predicting who will get a job or how we will police our society? And what happens when algorithms are used to attack societal foundations like elections?  In this session, we will explore the socioeconomic impact of algorithms, the ethics of big data, and how to work ethics into our analytics projects
