Big data analytics promise to solve weighty social problems. Yet, which stakeholders drive big data questions? How can computer scientists, community groups and social scientists work together to build on what we know about power, surveillance, privacy and collaboration? How can we make sure that a commitment to equity is central to big data analytics? This two-day workshop aims to discuss how to build ethical big data practices with leading scholars and practitioners. The workshop will start Thursday, September 29, 2016 at 8 AM and end on Friday, September 20, 2016 at 2:30 PM. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days.
