ABSTRACT

Data, Policy and the Disaster of Misrepresentation and Mistrust   [open pdf - 471KB]

From the Abstract: "Using big data and current technology is increasingly becoming part of the practice of emergency and disaster management. With respect to marginalized populations, there are flaws in the way technologies are designed and how data is collected that have negative, disparate impacts on these groups. The organizations that produce the tools and products sometimes have diversity problems that impact the resources they provide. As emergency and disaster management professionals and organizations increase their use of these tools, it is important to understand the biases associated with them, the causes and how it will impact their ability to serve groups in most need of their assistance."
