The ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making (ADM+S) and the European Centre for Algorithmic Transparency (ECAT) recently held a collaborative workshop in Seville, Spain, that explored future cooperation possibilities to analyse transparency, assess risks, and propose new transparent approaches and best practices in the field of automated decision-making.
Chaired by ECAT’s Lead Scientist, Dr Emilia Gómez, and co-organised by ADM+S Research Fellow Dr Jose-Miguel Bello y Villarino from the University of Sydney, the workshop included sessions on the future of employment, regulation of general purpose AI and foundation models, AI in public service, the EU AI Act, regulation of AI in Australia, liability regimes in the age of AI, comments from a Common Law Perspective, and recommender systems and online platforms.
“It speaks to the impressive network that ADM+S has developed that we are the first non-EU centre to have a workshop with the ECAT. It was a unique opportunity to translate the research of our institutions programme into technical aspects of policy-making beyond Australia,” said Dr Jose-Miguel Bello y Villarino.
The European Centre for Algorithmic Transparency (ECAT) is part of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in cooperation with the Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT). ECAT is dedicated to building a safer, more predictable, and trusted online environment for people and businesses.
