Kicking off a great event this morning, Beyond IRBs: Designing Ethical Review Processes for Big Data Research, with over 60 of the country’s top academics and industry researchers. Thoughtful Key Note remarks from Professor Ryan Calo, from the¬†University of Washington School of Law, have framed the conversation today around how best to create incentives in the private sector to work with privacy-conscious consumers, and how to learn from the criticisms of IRBs while benefiting from the wisdom of traditional models.

Our morning Firestarters, Joshua Fairfield and Margaret Hu, Professors at Washington & Lee School of Law, are now bringing the Workshop into full swing with a provocative guided discussion around the ethical obligations of informed consent to privacy policies.
