When:
April 1, 2014 all-day
Where:
Berkeley

CA
USA

About the Workshop (Livestream Available Here)

This workshop will examine the policy and governance questions raised by the use of large and complex data sets and sophisticated analytics to fuel decision-making across all sectors of the economy, academia and government. The event will feature a series of panel discussions, a closing roundtable, and keynote address.

The goal of this workshop is to broaden the policy conversation along two dimensions. First, the workshop will explore the range of values that may be challenged by the growing use of big data techniques.

These values include:

(1) A variety of privacy-related values, including control over both personal information and physical being, and autonomy in decision-making;

(2) Anti-discrimination values, including concerns about preserving fairness in an economic and political environment shaped by the growing technological capabilities to store and analyze data; and

(3) Concerns about democratic values, accountability, and social cohesion where data-driven “personalization” fosters in an increasingly fragmented society.

Second, the workshop will explore the range of mechanisms — regulatory, professional, and organizational — that can help ensure these values are protected. After identifying both the values at issue and the current instruments and practices for protecting those values, participants will seek to identify gaps between the two. This initial work will inform the conversation around fostering a big data environment that allows society to benefit from the insights of big data in a manner that remains true to societal values of individual privacy, democracy, and fairness.
