Obama technology advisor to speak at York College on Nov. 13 for Eichelberger Lecture
R. David Edelman, technology advisor to President Obama, will present “Machines That Discriminate: Fairness and Social Justice in the Era of Big Data” at 7:15 p.m., Nov. 13, in York College’s Waldner Performing Arts Center. The event, sponsored by the Chloé Eichelberger Business Education Series, is open to the public free of charge.
Edelman has been one of the government’s foremost voices on how technology is changing the U.S. economy, national security, and daily lives. An expert on some of the most pressing challenges facing the world today – from cybersecurity and privacy threats to artificial intelligence and automation – his insights have helped shape national and international policy at the highest levels. He is, perhaps, the only policymaker to have held separate appointments to three White House policy councils: National Security Council, National Economic Council, and the Office of Science and Technology Policy.
The Chloé Eichelberger Business Education Series sponsors lectures relevant to business education through an endowment to the College from a local entrepreneur.
