by Dr. Virginia Eubanks
A Prestige Lecture in the Critical Data Studies Series at Purdue University
Dr. Virginia Eubanks is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University at Albany, SUNY. Her latest published work serves as an investigation on how negatively subjective systems of data analytics target people of a particular socioeconomic status. Operating the intersection of technology – data mining, poly algorithm and predictive models of risk – with social justice, this presentation will foster understanding of how technology can contribute to the marginalization of poor people and people of color.
The Critical Data Studies Prestige Lecture series is organized through a collaboration of Purdue Honors College, Purdue University Libraries, and the Department of Anthropology, and in partnership with Center for Science of Information Science and Technology Center at Purdue.
