Trust in digital technologies: from contact-tracing apps to policies for Trustworthy AI

Speaker: Professor Andrea Renda, Senior Research Fellow and Head of the Global Governance, Regulation, Innovation and the Digital Economy at CEPS in Brussels.

The seminar description:

The ongoing digital transformation of government and markets is accompanied by a decline of trust in both public authorities and tech giants. From Cambridge Analytica to the Dutch SyRi case, citizens increasingly invoke rules for a fairer and more transparent use of powerful technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things: the hectic debate emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic on the use of digital technologies to contain the spread of the contagion is consistent with this trend. The European Union is responding with a new wave of regulation on digital platforms, data spaces, cybersecurity, and in particular AI. Will this lead to defining what is trust in digital technology? Does this imply changing the Internet, and the way we use it?
