Jeanna Matthews is an associate professor of Computer Science at Clarkson University and a 2017-18 fellow at Data and Society. She is member of the Executive Committee of US-ACM, the U.S. Public Policy Committee of ACM and a founding co-chair of their subcommittee on algorithmic transparency and accountability. Her research interests are wide ranging from the security of virtualization and cloud computing systems to third-party review of software used in the criminal justice system to alternate models for offline data usage. Jeanna received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley and is an ACM Distinguished Speaker.

Taeyoon Choi is an artist, educator, and activist based in New York and Seoul. His art practice involves performance, electronics, drawings, and installations that form the basis for storytelling in public spaces. He co-founded the School for Poetic Computation where he continues to organize sessions and teach classes.@tchoi8 http://taeyoonchoi.com/

Darakhshan Mir is a Jane Griffith Faculty Fellow and Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Bucknell University, working on issues of data privacy. Prior to that, she was the Norma Wilentz Hess Fellow at Wellesley College and earned her PhD in Computer Science at Rutgers University. Her research consists of examining questions about privacy in algorithmic, information-theoretic, and more recently, in social contexts. She enjoys challenging herself and her students to think more deeply about our “nerd privileges” and question our “unbridled technological optimism.” @sciencemeandyou
