Companies today are racing to exploit the growing availability of "BIG DATA." Big
data helps firms create better products and services for customers and greatly improves
decision making; however, big data can create risks and complex ethical challenges.
Is your organization prepared to address the ethical implications of big data?
How does big data fit into your Corporate Social Responsibility strategy?
The University of Dallas Sustainable Business Network has invited thought leaders
from a variety of industries to share their insights into what big data means in their
industries. These experts will discuss their experiences and lessons learned for avoiding the pitfalls of big data, including privacy,
confidentiality, and transparency challenges.
Join us for this engaging, interactive session!
You will leave better prepared to take on the social, legal, and ethical issues that
big data presents to your organization!

UD students not only read St. Augustine's Confessions in Rome, traveling to Ostia to marvel at the place in which, according to Book IX, St. Augustine and his mother, St. Monica, had a joint mystical vision of God -- they also travel 4.4 miles from the Irving campus to read the text with residents of South Irving.
As you know if you’ve read even some of our first UD Reads book, "All the Light We Cannot See," it’s possible to build a radio from random, scavenged parts, as long as you can find the necessary random, scavenged parts, as Werner does in the book. This is also essentially what Assistant Professor and Department Chair of Physics Jacob Moldenhauer did as well: He scavenged parts from the Physics Department, and built a radio.
