A Conversation with Linnet Taylor on Just Data Governance

Join us for a conversation with Linnet Taylor, professor at Tilburg University, 
Siddharth Peter De Souza, post-doctoral researcher at Tilburg University, and our moderator, Georgetown Law Professor Julie Cohen. Linnet Taylor and Siddharth Peter de Souza recently published "Governing data and artificial intelligence for all: Models for sustainable and just data governance" for the European Parliament. They will be discussing this publication with a particular focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and how the European Union's data governance framework can align with a data justice perspective. The analysis offers an assessment of the EU data governance strategy overall as well as an explanation of what this means for specific legislation, such as the AI act, the Data Governance act and the Data act.

This event is exclusive for student, staff, and faculty. 
October 4th
Technology, Listeners, and the First Amendment with Helen Norton

Empowered by the ability to collect and aggregate information about users and then to tailor messages designed to shape those users’ responses, today’s digital technologies can facilitate manipulation unprecedented in its reach and success. Differences in power and information matter to First Amendment law, permitting the government’s interventions to protect vulnerable listeners. The First Amendment permits the government to intervene to protect listeners from speakers’ manipulative efforts in certain settings.

The event will be hosted on Tuesday, October 4th from 12:30-2:30pm in McDonough 200. This event is open exclusively to students. To add to your Google calendar, click here.

Faculty and Fellows Update

Anupam Chander:
Professor Anupam Chander recently  published a paper in a Yale Information Society Project series with the Yale Journal of Law and Technology titled "Section 230 and the International Law of Facebook". Despite its local origins, Section 230 serves as a key architectural norm of the global internet: internet service providers are not typically responsible for the speech of their users. Section 230 underpins what we might describe as the International Law of Facebook — the global community guidelines written and enforced by internet platforms, largely allowing these platforms to regulate the speech on their platforms. Reviewing Section 230 cases involving foreign events, foreign parties, or foreign law, the essay reveals how Section 230 made the U.S. a safe home base from which to offer a global speech platform.

Amanda Levendowski:
Professor Amanda Levendowski recently published one article and have two upcoming articles. They are as follows:
Kobbi Nissim:
Professor Kobbi Nissim has a new NSF funded project beginning October 1 2022, "Co-design of law and computer science for privacy in sociotechnical software systems". This is a collaborative research project with the other researchers coming from Harvard’s Berkman-Klein center for Internet and society (Chris Bavitz and Alexandra Wood) and from Boston University’s department of computer science (Marco Gaboardi). Read more about the project here. 

Professor Nissim also gave a keynote in an event celebrating the Italian data protection authority 25th anniversary. He spoke about the need to reconcile the diverging legal and technical approaches to data privacy, and in particular anonymization, towards creating regulation which is proactive and “future proof". You can view more information about the keynote here. 
Kyoko Yoshinaga:
Non-Resident Fellow Kyoko Yoshinaga as been appointed as an Expert to the Multistakeholder Experts Group Plenary (MEG) of the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI), an international initiative built around a shared commitment to the OECD Recommendation on Artificial Intelligence, to promote responsible development and use of AI.
