Visiting Scholar Lecture: Cathy O’Neil on the ‘Dark Side of Math’

November 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

To some, the age of big data is a utopian vision—one where decision making can be aided by the objective results of statistical analysis and advanced algorithms. But Cathy O’Neil, Ph.D., argues that human biases are often built into those very same tools. As the guest of the Visiting Scholar Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, in Arrupe Hall auditorium, O’Neil will share her expertise on the dark side of data as one of the most respected voices in the ethics of data science.

A reception will follow this free lecture. To register your attendance, call 816-501-4828. Free parking is available in the garage at 52nd Street and Troost Avenue and in all lots accessed by the campus entrance at 54th Street and Troost Avenue. See rockhurst.edu/map for more information.
