Bridging Industry and Academia to Tackle Responsible Research and Privacy Practices

November 2, 2017 - November 3, 2017

As more human interactions move online and the amount and variety of information shared digitally continues to grow, decisions regarding the collection, sharing, and use of this data must take into account both ethical and privacy considerations. It is important that industry and academia come together to find joint solutions for making these difficult decisions regarding privacy and ethics to maximize the benefits of data-driven research and practices, while ensuring that harms and negative outcomes are prevented. To bridge communication between these communities, we are organizing a workshop for thought leaders from academiaindustry and civil society to identify common goals, establish a long-term vision, and initiate working teams for tangible projects focused on responsible research ethics and privacy practices around user data. The workshop will kick-off with a keynote from Facebook’s Deputy Chief Privacy Officer, Rob Sherman, and a panel discussion from our advisory board members.
