Book Description
How to use data as a tool for empowerment rather than oppression.

Big data can be used for good--from tracking disease to exposing human rights violations--and for bad--implementing surveillance and control. Data inevitably represents the ideologies of those who control its use; data analytics and algorithms too often exclude women,the poor,and ethnic groups. In Data Action,Sarah Williams provides a guide for working with data in more ethical and responsible ways. Too often data has been used--and manipulated--to make policy decisions without much stakeholder input. Williams outlines a method that emphasizes collaboration among data scientists,policy experts,data designers,and the public. This approach creates trust and co-ownership in the data by opening the process to those who know the issues best
