The Information Accountability Foundation on Wednesday released its first paper on its Big Data Ethics Project. The project aims to create tools for businesses and law enforcement authorities to ensure big data benefits while preventing negative outcomes such as discrimination or misuse of data. Governance, according to the paper, is key. “To establish big data governance, the foundation believes in the need for a common ethical frame based on key values and the need for an interrogation framework,” the paper states. “In formulating a frame, we concluded the following: Governance requires enforcement; big data enforcement needs to be explored by stakeholders, and interrogation frameworks should be customized (at least at the industry level and possibly down to the company level).”
