Join the Data Science Community for talks from two Penn State data scientists! Talks include:
The Big Data Constitution
Presenter: Margaret Hu, Associate Dean for Non-JD Programs, Professor of Law and International Affairs, and ICDS Co-Hire
About: The Constitution was forged in a small data world to protect rights and liberties from small data governance threats. In a big data world, the threats to our constitutional rights have been transformed. Therefore, the way that we interpret the Constitution must also be reimagined.
