A Conversation with Linnet Taylor on Just Data Governance

This was 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 discussed 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.

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.
