On the evening of March 4, Data and Society is hosting Yeshimabeit Milner, the Founder & Executive Director of Data for Black Lives, who will be discussing Big Data as more than a collection of technologies or a revolution in measurement and prediction; but rather as an ideological regime that determines how decisions are made, and who makes them. This talk serves as a call to action to reject the concentration of Big Data in the hands of a few, to challenge the structures that allow data to be wielded as a weapon of immense political influence. To abolish Big Data would mean to put data in the hands of people who need it the most.

This talk is hosted by Data & Society Executive Director Janet Haven.
