Columbia @ Home - Data for Good: Ensuring the Responsible Use of Data to Benefit Society

Jeannette Wing, Avanessians Director of the Columbia University Data Science Institute (DSI), will discuss these unique opportunities and challenges with the Columbia @ Home audience. She will also speak about DSI’s mission, and share recent highlights across its education and research.

Data helps us discover new knowledge, interpret the world, make decisions, and even predict the future.

The capabilities we derive from data science will drive our cars, treat disease, and keep us safe, but at the same time, such capabilities risk leading to biased, inappropriate, or unintended action.

The design of data science solutions requires both excellence in the fundamentals of the field and expertise to develop applications that meet human challenges without creating even greater risk.

About DSI: The Data Science Institute at Columbia University promotes Data for Good: using data to address societal challenges and bringing humanistic perspectives as—not after—new science and technology is invented. Started in 2012, DSI now represents over 350 affiliated faculty from 17 different Schools and institutes across the University.
