    Big data can be used for good—from tracking disease to exposing human rights violations—and for bad: implementing surveillance and control. Data inevitably represents the ideologies of those who control its use; data analytics and algorithms too often exclude women, the poor, and ethnic groups.

    In this #online #talk, Sarah Williams — Associate Professor of Technology at the MIT School of Architecture and Planning — provides a guide for working with data in more ethical and responsible ways.

    [This talk was held online by Conway Hall in 2020, whilst our London venue was closed during the Covid-19 lockdown in the UK]

    Conway Hall hosts a wide variety of talks, concerts, exhibitions, courses, performances, community and social events. It is also renowned as a hub for free speech and independent thought, hosting suffragettes, political radicals, scientists, philosophers, artists, performers; campaign, charities and other non- profit organisations.
