Speaker: Kord Davis
The pace of technology innovation far exceeds that of technology legislation. Organizations have a vested interest in innovation and profit. Individuals have a vested interest in their digital identity, and their privacy, property, and reputation. How can we align our individual interests with our organizational goals for the greater good? And what are the benefits of doing so?
One first step is to understand the ethical landscape big data has brought into our daily lives. Ethics of Big Data (O’Reilly Media, 2012) author Kord Davis will be discussing this landscape and exploring ways to balance the benefits of technology innovation with the risk of unintended consequences.
Big data is evolving the very social contract which influences how our society works. Come explore and learn how some of those changes are showing up in our daily lives and what we, as individuals, can do to help align our individual values with our organizational actions.
