CIC has just hosted a citizen engagement event, to introduce the general public, and UTS staff (we had a 50/50 split) to some of the ethical issues surrounding “Big Data”. We used The Human Face of Big Data movie — from the makers of An Inconvenient Truth — to kick things off, before inviting a distinguished panel to discuss the movie from their distinctive perspectives.
We’re grateful to our panel for their minds, passion and energy!
Glenn Wightwick – DVC Research, UTS
Eva Cox – Professorial Fellow, Jumbunna IHL, UTS
Michael Fraser – Director, Communications Law Centre, UTS
Tuck Wah Leong – Assoc. Professor, School of Software, UTS
John Lang – Senior Consultant, Executive Health Solutions
The movie does of course bring its own biases, and drew some fire from a number of quarters from our panellists. We’re using it as a provocation in our new Master of Data Science & Innovation, and strongly recommend it as a way to get the ideas flowing.
Check out the movie trailer…
…and the ensuing panel discussion…
