Conversations in Bioethics is an annual event series hosted by the Kennedy Institute of Ethics that examines a pressing issue in bioethics. This year’s focus is data ethics. Our esteemed panelists include:

Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator of “Meet the Press”

Rick Smolan, photographer, CEO of Against All Odds Productions, and New York Times best-selling author

Join us at Georgetown as we bring together creative student work and expert panel conversation to reflect on the potential benefits and dangers of data profiling, reasonable expectations of privacy in the digital age, the ethics of “truth” in the age of information bubbles, and more. The event will begin at 6 p.m. in Riggs Library in Healy Hall with a reception and student gallery, including drinks and passed hors d’oeuvres. The panel discussion will begin at 7:30 in Gaston Hall.
