How will new, innovative technologies benefit all individuals and help alleviate social and economic inequalities? As the urge to collect and categorize vast quantities of data about our digital behavior becomes more widespread, big data presents new opportunities and profound challenges for individuals’ civil liberties and civil rights, and especially for communities of color, women, and other historically disadvantaged groups.

In this panel, leading organizers and advocates will discuss how fairness and justice figure into considerations of personal privacy and predictive analytics. Panelists will present a set of civil and human rights principles to guide legal and ethical thinking about safeguards and best practices. They will discuss high-tech profiling, automated computer decision systems, digital due process, access and control over personal data, and problems of inaccurate or incomplete big data.
