In December 2020 we gathered Dutch and Swedish experts from research, governance, and technology to discuss the urgent matter of data bias and algorithmic discrimination. Algorithms thrive on an ever-growing amount of data that enable organisations to categorise, rank, and make decisions about us. Big data and AI hold great potential but can also pose challenges for inclusion, fairness, and ethics in our digital societies.
It was a very insightful and important debates that focused on three key questions:
- What are data bias and algorithmic discrimination?
- How trustworthy are data and algorithms?
- Who is accountable/responsible for data biases and algorithmic discrimination?
