The aim of the lecture series is to advance research in the areas of race and data, engineering, and computational science. McNealy will speak on “Design + Power: Policy for the Ecology of Influence” focusing on platforms, apps, and other technology used to create persuasive environments.

She will explain the ecological approach to data governance by examining the interactions, relationships, and connections that design provokes in data systems. She will also examine the role of policy in reshaping these persuasive systems with the goal of mitigating or stopping the possible harm from data collection.
