College Park, Md.-- The University of Maryland was recently awarded a $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation to explore the ethics of how big data are captured and used. Led by UMD’s College of Information Studies, the four-year research project, titled PERVADE (Pervasive Data Ethics for Computational Research), will study issues surrounding user consent, risk assessment and regulations. The project aims to provide guidance to policymakers, regulators and tech developers to help drive the development of a new, more ethical, norm in big data collection and usage.
