Safety in Numbers? the Use (and Misuse) of Data in Society

April 15, 2021 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm


Data is everywhere: from COVID efficacy rates to election polling, from the justice system to the internet. 

Data can be a tool to improve our lives, but what about the downside to all of this use of data – not only through hacks and security breaches, but also when data is manipulated to advance certain political and social agendas?

Join Dietrich School faculty members Thomas Hales, Lucas Mentch, Sandra Mitchell,  Lara Putnam, and moderator Lisa Parker for a lively conversation about the role that data plays in society--the good, the bad, and the life altering.

This event is part of the Science Revealed 2021 Series, sponsored by the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences.

Dial-In Information

The event is free and open to the public but registration is required by April 12. Visit to RSVP.
