How does Amsterdam come to a safe and responsible data and technology policy? At this event, Waag ran workshop exercises to apply the values of the Tada manifesto to a range of real-world scenarios of data use in cities.
Facebook influences elections, AirBnB disrupts the housing market and data leaks are the order of the day. Responsible data & technology policy is essential for the digital future of Amsterdam. To this end, the excesses must be tackled and coherent, visionary policies developed with room for alternatives. What values underlie a responsible policy and how can we guarantee this in practice?
In this hands-on workshop for politicians, policy makers and other interested parties, applied the values of the Tada manifesto and the alternative methods of DECODE to existing case studies. It considered what a safe and responsible data policy for Amsterdam looks like.
The workshop is part of the European-funded DECODE project and was accessible free of charge. It was held at the Parkhuis de Zwijger.
