Abstract

In this chapter, we analyze questions pertaining to the use of predictive models based on big data from the point of view of Allen Buchanan's 'morality of inclusion'. Here we discuss to potential ethical risks of big data that are normally not discussed in the literature. We illustrate ethical threats of big data for the morality of inclusion with two example of big data applications, one taken from the insurance domain and the other from the employment domain.

Keywords: big data, ethics, insurance, people analytics, human resources, solidarity
