The advent of artificial intelligence will bring on the table new and unexpected problematics and opportunities on which the legislator will be called to legislate. Or not.

During this event, we will introduce you to two new scientific data-based theories that explain the new world we live in. The first one is the Economic Fitness and Complexity methodology, that can be used for monitoring, planning and forecasting the economic growth of companies, specific industries and, in general, the innovation and creativity process. The second theory describes the cognitive determinants behind misinformation and rumor spreading, and was already included in the Global Risk Report presented by the World Economic Forum. The event is invite-only. You can request an invitation here

Today, AI systems and products are becoming widespread in many aspects of everyday life, from insurance to policing and online platforms. Can we ensure that an algorithm is fair to everyone?
