Dealing with Algorithmic Risks through EU Policy

Open discussion with participation of Emilia Gómez, lead scientist of ECAT, in a panel 

Algorithms are taking on an increasingly significant role in our everyday lives. While these systems tend to remain invisible to most of us and operate seamlessly, they impact significantly the way decisions are made in contemporary societies. Such rapid technological advancements inevitably transform the fabric of social and political life, bringing various societal benefits but also a wide variety of risks. This panel discussion will bring together researchers and policymakers from academia and the European Commission to tackle pressing questions about the challenges we face in an algorithmized world, such as platform governance, disinformation, data infrastructures, and questions of fairness and transparency in the datafied society.
