Cloudy Forecasts

The value of Big Data and intelligent systems mostly lies in the promise that we can make better estimates of the future with them. But is that really true? Who and what determines the learning process and settings of these systems? ‘Predictive analytics’ and ‘predictive policing’ are issues that are as controversial as they are hot. Time for a social, political and ethical debate. Ramon Amaro investigates the ethical implications of Big Data at the Centre for Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London. Rutger Rienks authored the book Predictive Policing: Taking a Chance for a Safer Future. The two of them are joined by Frank Rieger from the Chaos Computer Club (Berlin) and freelance data scientist Egge van der Poel for a discussion.
