Organizations are grappling with how to harness the power of data while balancing the ethics of data collection.

Technologists and humanists have been debating this topic behind the scenes for the last decade, yet 2020 might just be the year organizations are forced to address this challenge and take a stand. 

To this end, we’ve gathered a group of future-focused leaders from large organizations, technology companies, and start-ups for a fireside chat to share their thoughts on questions like:

  • If the government asked you to access the data of one of your customers, what would you do?
  • How would your organization go about deciding that your digital app’s experience has become too addictive? 
  • Who decides what’s “right” and what’s “wrong” when personal values and politics show up inside your organizations?
  • “Just because you can, should you?” What principles and guidelines are you using to choose what your team should be building? 

Mark McKenna, John P. Murphy Foundation Professor of Law and acting director of the University of Notre Dame’s Technology Ethics Center will moderate the discussion.
