Prof. Nitesh ChawlaEditor-in-Chief, Prof. Nitesh V. Chawla, about Discover Data

It is an exciting and timely opportunity to envision a journal that is at the intersection of data and society. As the applications of data science / machine learning / artificial intelligence become more pervasive and ubiquitous, it becomes increasingly important to look at all aspects from data collection to applications, especially from a social contract perspective. To truly reap the benefits of innovations stemming from data science, there will also have to be a framework that demonstrates alignment with societal needs and grand challenge problems, algorithmic and data responsibility, and knowledge of and
compliance with best practices, coupled with a human-driven value system of sound judgment. We envision this journal to be a home for publications that speak to this framework, inspire new data-driven solutions to society's most pressing problems."
