How Might Ethical Data Principles Borrow from Social Work?
I’m in the process of co-writing a book called Data Feminism, together with Lauren Klein. Recently, I’ve had the privilege of interviewing people who are working at the cutting edge of ethical data and inclusive artificial intelligence. Two people in particular have brought our attention to the field of social work in relation to data science. In an article about data violence, Anna Lauren Hoffmann wrote that “engineers and data scientists need to listen to and engage with affected communities.” Though engineers and data scientists are typically not equipped for engaging with communities, social workers have deep expertise in that regard. She and I recently discussed the striking lack of overlap between social work and information science.
