Center for Applied Data Ethics
At the Center for Applied Data Ethics (CADE), we are working to address ethical issues such as the magnification of unjust bias, increased surveillance, spread of disinformation, alarming uses of predictive policing, a lack of accountability for tech companies, and more. Our focus is on having a direct, practical impact. Our inaugural year is funded by a generous donation from Craig Newmark (founder of Craigslist). Rachel Thomas serves as founding director. Our work includes a mix of education, research, public policy, and civil advocacy.
