Markus Runs NSF-Funded Workshop

M. Lynne Markus (IPM), working with several Bentley colleagues, recently ran a successful NSF-funded workshop in Washington, D.C.

Markus and Bentley colleagues  including Heikki Topi, CIS; Sue Newell, MG and IPM; Fred Ledley, NAS; and Kevin Mentzer, IPM doctoral student; were working to develop a research agenda on the social, economic, and workforce consequences of "Big Data" and automated decision making. In addition to leading academic researchers in the fields of computer and information science,  law, organization, sociology, and ethics, the workshop drew policy makers, industry experts, and foundation officers. The workshop will result in a published research agenda.
