This 2-day workshop, hosted by Human(e) AI of the University of Amsterdam, will explore ethical, social, and regulatory aspects of AI (un)fairness. Submitted proposals should focus on AI systems designed to support democracy such as government decision-making, public administration or the media. We aim to bring together researchers from different academic disciplines to zoom in on the intricate democratic issues that arise when transferring decision authority to an AI-based system.
Our guest of honour will be Reuben Binns, from the University of Oxford, who will deliver a talk on "AI and the Human in the Loophole". If you cannot attend the session, subscribe to our YouTube Channel and watch it there!

Our Book Recommendation of the Month: Algorithmic Reason by Claudia Ardau & Tobias Blanke
How did algorithms, big data, and artificial intelligence become the inevitable answer to global challenges? Political rationality is rising across the world which situates emerging technology as key to social, political, and economic transformations. National security questions are increasingly approached through algorithmic realities while humanitarian action to govern precarious lives becomes entangled with big tech companies and start-ups. Yet these technologies also seem to amplify existing hierarchies and replicate social divisions, themselves products of historical and contemporary politics of exclusion, prompting us to ask: What visions of societal progress are imagined through emerging technology? What is the prospect for collective action and democratic imaginaries in the context of these new rationalities?
Lecture Series: Digital Justice
The legal domain is being fundamentally transformed by the introduction of new digital technologies. Digitization promises to promote efficiency, objectivity, and ease of use in adjudication, legal practice, and the administration of justice. At the same time, concerns have been raised about issues such as algorithmic bias, digital illiteracy, and threats to judicial autonomy. The Digital Justice Lecture Series aims to offer a space for critical reflection on the future of law and legal practice. It is a collaboration between six prominent centers for research at the University of Amsterdam: the Paul Scholten Centre for Jurisprudence (
PSC), the research priority area Human(e) AI, the Amsterdam Center on the Legal Professions and Access to Justice (ACLPA), the research initiative Digital Transformation of Decision Making (DTDM), the Amsterdam Centre for Transformative Private Law (ACT), and the Institute for Information Law (IViR). We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming events:
  • Monday 31 October, 15:30 - 17:00, Dr. Pietro Ortolani (Radboud University), ‘Digital Due Process and he Moderation of Lawful (But Harmful) Content on Social Media Platforms’, part of Ecologies of Private Law Lecture Series (ACT), register here
  • Friday 11 November 2022, 15:30 – 16:30, Nathalie Smuha (KU Leuven), title TBA, register here.
