DTDM Lunchtime Talks

The Digital Transformation of Decision-Making (DTDM) research initiative at the Amsterdam Law School are hosting a series of lunchtime talks. These talks are designed to provide a platform for colleagues at the Amsterdam Law School to share and discuss research on the digital transformation, including research on digital platforms, data governance, automated decision-making, and artificial intelligence. Researchers and scholars will share and discuss their research with our research community, as well as connect with other researchers working in similar areas. Please get in touch if you would like to share and discuss your research at one of our DTDM Lunchtime Talks.

On Friday, 19 February 2021, the Digital Transformation of Decision-Making (DTDM) research initiative at the Amsterdam Law School will host a lunchtime meeting with our new colleague Ilaria Buri, on the recently-launched Digital Services Act Observatory, based at the Institute for Information Law. The Digital Services Act (DSA) legislative package will set the terms for the relation of European democracies with dominant digital platforms for the coming decades, and the goal of the DSA Observatory is to provide independent input and coordinate engagement on DSA proposals by the UvA research community, as well as our broader network of platform regulation experts in academia and other relevant stakeholders, including civil society. The DTDM meeting will begin with a short talk on the DSA Observatory by Ilaria Buri, and will then be opened up for discussion and on ways to become involved.
