What is DIGETHIX?
DIGETHIX creates conversations around ethics and technology. We interview academic and industry experts to create case studies for public discussion on topics like privacy, research practices, disparities in healthcare, cryptography, and more. Podcast episodes are released on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at 4 pm ET / 1 pm PT.
Our goal is to educate the public on these issues. We hope to make these topics and the surrounding research accessible and to create a space for community conversations

CMAC’s network of expert researchers tackles complex social problems such as social integration of immigrants and refugees, religious self-radicalization, spiraling suicide rates, illegal child trafficking, ethical risks of digital data and computer algorithms.
CMAC is unique in using interdisciplinary teams of experts. Teams employ computational models, data analytics, historical interpretation, philosophical analysis of concepts and other methods to generate practical answers to the host of challenges confronting us. CMAC researchers rely on extensive collaboration to implement this leading-edge research, training, and public education.
