Title: Data ethics: What is it, and who needs it?



With ever wider aspects of the human and non-human world being datafied, and research in medicine and many other areas becoming increasingly datafied, the field of data ethics is becoming more important. But what is it? What is the difference between data ethics and other fields of ethics, such as medical ethics? And does it create more problem than it solves? These and other questions will be at the centre of our seminar.



Barabara Prainsack is professor at (and currently Head of) the Department of Political Science at the University of Vienna, where she directs the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Solidarity (CeSCoS), and the Research Platform “Governance of Digital Practices”. Her work explores the social, regulatory and ethical dimensions of biomedicine and bioscience, with current projects focusing on personalised & “precision” medicine, and the role of solidarity in medicine and healthcare (esp. also during COVID-19).
