Big data and predictive algorithms are transforming the world of work. While these developments hold the potential to make human labor more productive, they also pose significant risks of worsening workplace inequality. First, these tools can reproduce past patterns of exclusion and bias, leading to discrimination along lines like race, gender, and disability. Second, the use of big data analytics tools to exercise increasingly granular control over human labor can degrade working conditions and worsen economic inequality. This lecture will explore how “people analytics” can undermine workplace equality and the potential for reimagining these tools to empower workers
