The PRO-RES Workshop about, Ethics, Privacy and Explainable AI ESME 2019
Description:
Big data analytics and social mining raises a number of ethical issues, especially as companies begin monetizing their data externally for purposes different from those for which the data was initially collected. The scale and ease with which analytics can be conducted today completely changes the ethical framework. We can now do things that were impossible a few years ago, and existing ethical and legal frameworks cannot prescribe what we should do.

Summer School on Computational Misinformation Analysis 2019
Description:

The recent past has highlighted the influential role of social networks and other digital media in shaping public debate on current affairs and political issues. Disinformation and the hyper-partisan media distort societal debates, increase polarisation, and threaten participatory democracy. For instance, the surprising success of Brexit and Trump’s election has been, at least partially, attributed to the unprecedented weave of false information that in both cases have polluted online debate before the vote.
