Putting People First: Responsibility, Reciprocity and Care in Information Research and Practice

Closing Keynote Speaker- Ranjit Singh: The Ordinary Ethics of Putting People First

Ranjit Singh is a senior researcher at Data & Society, conducting qualitative research for the Algorithmic Impact Methods Lab. With a particular focus on research equity, he also helps guide the organization’s commitment to equitable research practices both internally and with its external partners. Singh’s work examines the everyday experiences of people subject to data-driven practices and follows the mutual shaping of their lives and their data records, aiming to understand how data is increasingly used to imagine and develop new digital solutions for democratizing inclusion. His research sits at the intersection of data infrastructures, majority world scholarship, and public policy, and uses methods of interview-based qualitative sociology and multi-sited ethnography.
