The CODATA Center of Excellence in Data for Society at the University of Arizona (CEDS) hosted a MiniForum within the Extraction: Tracing the Veins virtual conference.
CEDS convenes university scholars, industry professionals, experts and practitioners, and citizen advocates to come together, solve shared sociotechnical problems, and reimagine our data-driven world.
The MiniForum featured speakers discussing biocultural data mining, the extractive and generative values of data, the legal and economic implications of text and data mining, data sovereignty, Indigenous data governance, digital communities, and data issues in COVID, smart city design, privacy, and new ways to think about data sharing in the post-pandemic economy.
This MiniForum was the first event in the CEDS Data Forum, which will continue to work with host institutions to convene international stakeholders across all sectors of society, and explore the issues of privacy, justice, fairness, representation, rights, and responsibilities for all those who produce and use data.
