Symposium: Ethische Herausforderungen in der Big Data Forschung

Big Data wird zunehmend in den Natur-, Geistes- und Medizinwissenschaften eingesetzt, um neue evidenzbasierte Erkenntnisse disziplinübergreifend zu generieren. Ziel des Symposiums ist es, einige der drängendsten ethischen Fragen zu untersuchen, darunter Anonymisierung, Schutz von Menschen, Fairness und Datenschutz.

Konferenzsprache: Englisch

Big Data is increasingly used in science, the humanities and medicine and to generate novel evidence based findings across multiple disciplines. However, research using big data also raises important ethical questions. The aim of the symposium is to explore some of the most pressing ethical issues, including anonymization, protection of human subjects, fairness and data protection. To this end, researchers from multiple fields will discuss their own experiences of the promises and challenges of data-driven research involving human subjects, and share their insights on ethics in big data with the symposium attendees.

The symposium will be divided into two parts. In the morning there will be a talk by Dr. Michele Loi from the Institute of Biomedical Ethics and the Digital Society Initiative, University Zurich who will critically introduce the ethical issues of Big Data, followed by four short presentations from Swiss researchers working with Big Data in the fields of Epidemiology, Psychology and Data Science. After lunch, there will be a closed round table discussion where researchers will have the possibility to further discuss the topics that emerged during the morning session.

The morning presentation session is open to the public and will take place in Fakultätenzimmer 112 of the Kollegienhaus. The round table in the afternoon is a closed session upon invitation and it will take place in Seminarraum 007 at the ground floor of the Institute for Biomedical Ethics in Bernuoillistrasse 28.
