2017 I/S Symposium – Predictive Analytics, Law, and Policy: Mapping the Terrain
The “big data” phenomenon holds forth the promise of unleashing great social advances. It also raises important challenges to privacy, fairness, and social trust. This is giving rise to a new field of law and policy studies aimed at maximizing the social value of big data while minimizing its associated risks. The 2017 I/S symposium, “Predictive Analytics, Law, and Policy: Mapping the Terrain,” brought leading scholars together to start laying out something of an intellectual roadmap for this emerging field. It was the journal’s first annual symposium co-sponsored by the College of Law’s new Program on Data and Governance. Below is a series of audio recordings from the event.
