"Ethics" is one of the important and often underestimated topic in data analytics. The growth of the big data analytics market is electrifying as it promises to explore the untapped potential in growing business, finding drugs, stopping security threats, improving food production, governing the country and many more. This exorbitant interest leads to naïve analytics that opens organizations to ethical challenges. A Gartner study predicts that by 2018, 50 percent of business ethics violations will occur through improper use of big data analytics. This presentation intends to address the considerations of ethics in big data analytics.

Healthcare and modern medicine are driving towards delivering more personalized health solutions both for patients and those that we can help prevent from becoming future patients. At Penn Medicine, there are a number of initiatives underway to help drive personalized medicine and population health, and data and data analytics solutions are necessary approaches to help implement them. Use of search and navigation, natural language processing, predictive analytics and high performance analytics are all some examples that we will present.
