Developing an Ethical Compass for Big Data

Developing an Ethical Compass for Big Data

(p.231) Fifteen Developing an Ethical Compass for Big Data
Big Data and Democracy

Harald Stelzer

Hristina Veljanova

Edinburgh University Press

Stelzer and Veljanova argue in this chapter for a new ethical compass with which to approach big data concerns, such as privacy, equality, and discrimination. They identify key ethical concerns which often arise in cases regarding big data and then provide a framework through which we might approach these concerns such that we can have a degree of certainty that we have not overlooked ethical worries.

Keywords:   Data Analytics, Discrimination, Equality, Ethics, Framework, Privacy
