A major milestone is fast approaching: Data & Society’s 100th Databite! We’re gearing up to cross the #100 marker with Databites 100 Series, a three-part talk series unfurling over the course of June 2017.
These three eclectic talks will feature ten of our 2016-2017 Fellows class speaking about their work. Each Databite will showcase the wide-ranging interdisciplinary connections and a few of the provocative questions that have emerged from our fellows cohort this year:
- Dan Grushkin on The DNA Revolution: Merging Data with Biology
- Alice Marwick on Media Manipulation & Disinformation Online
- Rebecca Wexler on Trade Secrets & Black-boxing Criminal Justice
- Suchana Seth on Machine Learning: What’s Fair and How Do We Decide?
- Ravi Shroff on Stats and the City: A Data-driven Approach to Criminal Justice and Child Welfare
- Anne Washington on Data Science Reasoning
- Mark Ackerman on Contested Science, Contested Truth
- Tega Brain on The entropy of a system.
- Ingrid Burrington on Apocalypse, Still Buffering
- Zara Rahman on Inform/Transform: Translating Critical Tech Perspectives
Each talk will be followed by a reception from 5pm – 7pm.
