2021 Marquette Ethics of Big Data Symposium
The 2021 Ethics of Big Data Symposium will focus on “Applied Algorithmic Ethics” and will take place November 4, 2021 from 12:30pm – 2:00pm
As algorithms increasingly automate decision-making processes, filter information flows, and mediate our social interactions, ethical concerns immediately follow. Questions of fairness, accountability, and transparency permeate the growing set of concerns around the social and ethical implications of algorithms. As a growing community of scholars grapples with the ethics of algorithms, how can their findings be applied by technologists engaged in machine learning and the cutting edge of AI development in order to minimize unintended bias and the risk of harm? Put simply, how can businesses apply algorithmic ethics?
The 2021 Marquette Ethics of Big Data Symposium brings together some of the leading voices on applied algorithmic ethics to discuss the latest efforts to engage with these difficult challenges.
We are excited to welcome our keynote speaker Dr. Rumman Chowdhury, director of Twitter’s ML Ethics, Transparency and Accountability (META) team. Immediately following Dr. Chowdhury’s keynote will be reactions and conversations with Dr. Luke Stark and Dr. Ranjit Singh, as well as a Q&A session with the audience.

The 2021 Ethics of Big Data Symposium will take place November 4, 2021 from 12:30pm – 2:00pm (CT). This is a virtual event; registrants will receive a link to attend virtually a few days prior to the event.
This symposium is organized by the Department of Computer Science at Marquette University in partnership with the Northwestern Mutual Data Science Institute.
