AI and Data Ownership: Navigating the Ethical Labyrinth

Description: The use of data plays an essential role in developing artificial intelligence. In an era where data is the new gold, its ownership, utilization, and ethical implications have become paramount. Join our panelists as they delve deep into the intricate web of data consent, ownership, and exploitation: 

Jack Himelright, Visiting Assistant Professor, Philosophy Department, KSU, will explore the nuanced differences between consent in medical contexts and data usage, shedding light on the complexities of informed consent in the digital age. 

Roger McHaney, University Distinguished Teaching Scholar and Professor of Management Information Systems, Daniel D. Burke Chair for Exceptional Faculty, KSU, emphasizes the rapid evolution of data ownership and its monetization, often outpacing legal regulations. He will discuss the pressing need for businesses to establish proactive data governance frameworks, ensuring both legal compliance and ethical integrity. 

Camila Hernandez Florez,Postdoctoral Fellow in the Embedded EthiCS program at Harvard University, challenges the conventional notion of personal data ownership, highlighting the conceptual, moral, and legal dilemmas it presents. She will argue against the "Big Data" business model, not on the grounds of property rights violations, but on its direct exploitation of data subjects. 


J.T. Laverty, Associate Professor, Physics Department, KSU. Laverty is a member of KSUPER, a research group at K-State that investigates the learning and teaching of physics using methods drawn from physics education research, the learning sciences, and science education.
