Working group

Digital Public Sphere Working Group

An interdisciplinary platform for discussing the use of data and technologies in public law. Our two sub-groups address different topics - one on the use of data in law enforcement, security and borders control; the other on the technical side, with a particular focus on AI and machine learning.

The Working Group “Digital Public Sphere” provides a platform for researchers who are interested in discussing issues related to the use of data and technologies in public law. The main peculiarity of the WG is its division into two different sub-groups with different fields of specialization. The first on the use of data in law enforcement, security and borders control; the second on the technical side, with a particular focus on AI and machine learning. The aim is to offer a fully interdisciplinary platform for researchers working on topics related to the intersection between Law and Technologies in the public sphere.

The Group is grateful for the support of Prof. Deirdre Curtin.
