Julia Angwin, on The Future of Redlining — a discussion of areas where redlining may be occurring and topics that she could investigate in her work as a journalist at ProPublica. What does redlining looks like in an era in which more personal data is available to more entities than ever before? Traditionally, redlining has been defined primarily as financial discrimination based on race. Now, in the era of big data, discrimination can take many more forms – from economic impact to government repression to denial of access to the marketplace of information – and can be targeted across many personal characteristics beyond race.
