Thinking Big: Ethics Meets Analytics

This presentation walks through case studies that demonstrate the effects of analytics on individuals, organizations, and government; highlights risk areas in designing and using analytics, and provides a framework for evaluation based on Cathy O’Neil’s Weapons of Math Destruction. The presenter will discuss Data Quality, Data Usage, Opacity, Scale and Damage in both positive and negative examples, including the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica collusion that affected the United Kingdom’s Brexit vote and the 2016 United States’ Presidential election, and the classic example of analytics, Moneyball.
