The deployment of Big Data in healthcare brings desirable opportunities to understand, prevent, and treat illness. But the sensitivity of medical data presents us with moral imperatives to respect privacy and patient rights, and to move beyond mere compliance. Marquette's second symposium on the Ethics of Big Data brings together researchers in philosophy and data science, and those working with healthcare information, to discuss how we should navigate the ethical challenges of new and powerful algorithmic solutions, in order to realize their greatest benefits to practitioners and to the public.
You are invited to attend this symposium which will look at the emerging world of Big Data with a special focus on Healthcare from perspectives of data science and philosophy.
