Title: Data Collection & Usage: Failed Good Intentions
Abstract: Public and Private Corporations collect data for many reasons. Government & security agencies also do the same. Different laws, ethics and cultural norms govern what kind of data is gathered and their rules for usage, disposal and identification. Machine learning and AI automatically analyze, predict and direct both machines and human actions based on this increasingly diverse data. Don will discuss cases where unexpected outcomes resulted and these he has termed as “failed good intentions”. With the volumes and varieties of data collection increasing and larger fines for misuse of that data this is a critical topic for data governance.

He is Professor Emeritus East Tennessee University and has consulted to both US and International police agencies on the collection & use of data and areas of potential misuse.
