Start Up Center: Data Ethics

We are proposing a pilot year to develop both a context of discussion that will attract colleagues from different fields and to seed research to advance our understanding of ethics in the new age of data sciences and computational social science. The time to identify, study and address ethical issues associated with data-driven decision-making is now. Columbia is well situated to advance the agenda, considering the partnership between ISERP and the Data Science Institute represented by the Working Group on Computational Social Science. Moreover, we will also have partners at NYU and Cornell Tech, and can advance the conversation that has already begun through initiatives like Data & Society. With ISERP funding, we can create a network that will develop new classes, course modules, and curricula around these issues, both at Columbia and beyond.
