With every message, every purchase, and every click, we generate data. Often quite unconsciously and even without immediate action on our behalf – the boundaries between online and offline are becoming increasingly blurred. Data, its processing, and interconnectedness through artificial intelligence thus influence fundamental developments in our society. Whether digital technologies make our worst nightmares or boldest utopias come true depends on how we develop and regulate them based on democratic values. How do we, as a society, deal with data security, surveillance, and privacy? What role do politics and jurisdiction play in technology development? And how can we in Europe take advantage of the opportunities offered by digitalization? Marc Rotenberg, president and founder of the Center for AI and Digital Policy, privacy activist Maximilian Schrems from noyb – European Center for Digital Rights and Christiane Wendehorst, law and digitalization expert and professor for civil law at the University of Vienna, discuss democracy and digitalization, legal differences between the US and Europe, and ways to take action.
