Ethics for the digital age - 9 May 2023

We invited to a breakfast roundtable with Professor Martin Kornberger (Vienna University of Economics and Business) and Linda Leopold, Head of Responsible AI & Data at H&M Group.

Ethics is a challenge, especially in the digital age – think algorithmic decision making, platform media, responsibility and transparency. With a roundtable discussion focusing on "Ethics for the Digital Age", we wanted to address this topic with a view to generate research ideas for future projects for the House of Innovation that are both academically intriguing and of practical relevance for industry and society.


Mingle & breakfast: 07:30 - 08:00

Roundtable discussion: 08:00 - 09:00

This is an event with limited seating. First come, first serve. Please RSVP no later than May 4, on the link to the right.
