Algorithmic systems affect our experiences online.
The Digital Services Act (DSA) is a legislative initiative by the European Union aimed at making the internet safer and protecting people’s rights online. Algorithmic transparency and accountability are key parts of this protection.
The European Centre for Algorithmic Transparency (ECAT) contributes with scientific and technical expertise to the European Commission's exclusive supervisory and enforcement role of the systemic obligations on designated Very Large Online Platforms (VLOPs) and Very Large Online Search Engines (VLOSEs) provided for under the DSA.
Head of ECAT, Alberto Pena, participated in an event organised by Garrigues on the DSA coming into full force soon.
The Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act aim to create a safer digital space where the fundamental rights of users are protected and to establish a level playing field for businesses.
The Digital Services Act (DSA) regulates the obligations of digital services that act as intermediaries in their role of connecting consumers with goods, services, and content. This includes online marketplaces amongst others.
