The second ECDF and Elsevier ‘Conversations on Science in the Digital Future’ panel explores responsible AI

The number of platforms and services that provide research information and analytics, and the developing capabilities of these tools, continues to grow as computer power increases, technologies get more sophisticated, and the volume of information and data expands.

Supporting the research community in this new digital era requires an open and proactive conversation about data. That’s why, together with the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF)opens in new tab/window, we have set up the 'Conversations on Science in the Digital Future' initiative. We hope these discussions will lead to greater understanding and collaboration between the research community, policymakers, academic publishers and broader society.

The first panel discussion — Data Privacy in the Digital Era — was held in November 2022. Watch the full recordingopens in new tab/window.

Over the next several months, the series will take deep dives into current and impactful topics, including usage data in science, data privacy, vulnerable population and assessment data, and artificial intelligence and ethics in scholarly publishing. The hybrid events will take place at the ECDF in Berlin and online.
