Engaging the Ethics of Data Science in Practice

danah boyd, Solon Barocas

D&S founder and President danah boyd & affiliate Solon Barocas investigate the practice of ethics in data science.

“Critical commentary on data science has converged on a worrisome idea: that data scientists do not recognize their power and, thus, wield it carelessly. These criticisms channel legitimate concerns about data science into doubts about the ethical awareness of its practitioners. For these critics, carelessness and indifference explains much of the problem—to which only they can offer a solution.”
