The Ecosystem of Ethics & Support of Big Data Research

Research involving data has gotten more complicated in recent years. With corporate, governmental, and other externally collected sources of data on human behavior increasingly available as well as new concerns about collecting online data such as social media data, issues of privacy, ethics, and equitable access to data are popping up that technical researchers are not trained to manage.  Systems currently in existence to help researchers navigate ethical concerns and new and emerging mandates can help with parts of the puzzle, yet many of the complex questions and tradeoffs are not best addressed by existing protocols.

To surface emerging issues and potential support systems on university campuses, a team at Data & Society Research Institute interviewed computer science researchers, data scientists, graduate students, and librarians. They also mapped funder mandates, IRB trainings, and existing policies and protocols at professional associations. Bonnie Tijerina will talk about this project and broader issues of privacy and ethics emerging in other disciplines with the increased use of big data.
