Clear about data - Amsterdam meetup with Waag

Monday, May 14, 2018 - 16:00 to 19:00
Pakhuis de Zwijger, Piet Heinkade 179, 1019 HC Amsterdam

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.
