Our weekly SRI Seminar Series welcomes Katie Shilton, an associate professor in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park, who leads the Ethics & Values in Design (EViD) Lab. Shilton’s research explores ethics and policy for the design of information technologies.

In this seminar, Shilton explores the use of pervasive data—large datasets about the identity, behaviour, or characteristics of people—and the ethical questions that arise regarding the development of norms and practices of using this data for research, within and beyond clinical settings. Drawing on a recent project, Shilton will discuss ways that health researchers working with pervasive data can reflect on data norms and data ethics.

This event is co-hosted by the University of Toronto’s Joint Centre for Bioethics.
