Abstract: This talk will seek to interweave two themes in the study of biodiversity: how to find process in the complexity of biodiversity data, and how to find and implement the best ethical practices in recognition that these data are just often extracted from un-ceded Indigenous homelands. We will discuss emerging modeling approaches that combine process models with machine learning, their potential for insight, and their data requirements. The data requirements are intensive, often necessitating use of open data repositories. With the rise of FAIR principles facilitating the reuse of data comes the need to also assert Indigenous and other local communities rights to and interests in data. This is the purview of the CARE principles, and we will discuss their application with case studies outside of Hawaiʻi, but also investigate their potential application here. The final connection between data hungry models and data ethics is to think what models would look like if they were informed by the same de-colonial positions as the CARE principles. We will provide a glimpse at this complex, full circle connection.
