Care ethics for Data Justice 2018…

Just back from a tropical few days at the Data Justice conference in Cardiff where I presented a paper on ‘Everyday justice in data science: what can ethics do?’ on behalf of myself and Aphra Kerr (Maynooth). It was a very interdisciplinary gathering with some great talks on diversity in data-sets, feminist data visualisations, government uses and misuses of data, applying ethical thinking to policy and more. We introduced the idea of and argued for a care ethics framework for data science – to counteract the dominance of consequentialist and contract-based ethical thinking and their over-emphasis on privacy in these heady Y2K – oops I mean – GDPR-focused times… More hopefully in a paper to come later this year 😉
