BiDEM Conference


BiDEM

The Business in Democracy Initiative (BiDEM) presents International, multidisciplinary research conference on

Personalisation and Discrimination in a Fundamental Rights Perspective


CBS LAW and the Business in Democracy Initiative (BiDEM) invites to an international, multidisciplinary research conference on personalisation and discrimination in data-driven business models.

Personalisation is an inherent element of data-driven business models. Personalisation is sometimes desirable, and sometimes personalisation amounts to discrimination. We want recommender systems to augment our online realities; however, optimisation that only suit the interest of the trader may create abated online realities with unintended personal, social and societal harm. The aim of this conference is to frame and elucidate a discussion of the difference between legitimate personalisation and unlawful discrimination in context of data-driven business models.

The Business in Democracy Initiative (BiDEM) aims to understand, challenge and develop fundamental rights concerning information with a multidisciplinary approach. The focus is on the role that businesses play in democratic societies with regard to mediating information and processing personal data.

 Keynote speakers:

  • Partner Henrik Saugmandsgaard Øe, Gorrissen Federspiel, former Advocate General at the CJEU
  • Professor Avishalom Tor, Notre Dame University
  • Professor Eric K. Clemons, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania
