The Committee on Ethics is concerned with how best to promote a culture of ethical research in data science, and also how to teach ethics of data science to our students. We are interested both in universal questions but also application-specific issues (i.e. privacy safeguards guaranteed by HIPAA in the medical domain, and FERPA in the educational domain) and how to design educational modules to best address these.

The current committee consists of:

  • Kathleen Fisher, Department of Computer Science (Chair)
  • Peter Levine, Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service
  • Nick Seaver, Department of Anthropology
