acmateescu's bookmarks 2017-03-21
This symposium will explore the legal and ethical implications of big data discrimination and algorithmic-derived discrimination. Recent reports have indicated that big data tools and algorithmic-driven decision making protocols can be used to isolate, analyze, and discriminate against individuals based on race, gender, religion, voting habits, residency, consumer behaviors, health status, and other data characteristics. This Symposium aims to deepen the conversation on the impact of the growth of algorithmic-centered power in the private and public sectors.
