Introducing FRA’s big data research to legal and IT experts

The EU’s Network and Information Security Agency, ENISA, held its Annual Privacy Forum in Barcelona from 13 to 14 June where FRA introduced its project on Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Rights, as well as FRA’s focus paper on discrimination in data-supported decision making.

The Forum brings together participants with IT and legal expertise, from different backgrounds such as academia, civil society, businesses and EU institutions. Participants discussed how technical innovations can contribute to better protection of privacy and personal data.

The following day, FRA attended the Internet Privacy Engineering Network workshop organised by the European Data Protection Supervisor in Barcelona to discuss similar topics, focusing on innovative ideas developed by businesses and researchers.
