New big data computational techniques promise to disrupt our expectations of privacy in an unprecedented way. We need to understand their power and limits and to think about how the law should respond, if at all.


Prof Ohm wants to decipher which data can lead to discriminatory actions and privacy invasions and to set safeguards for a better protection of human subjects in Data Science.
He will actively encourage computer scientists to think more critically about the social impacts of their work and help policymakers understand the nature of the challenges ahead.
