1st ReEnTrust Stakeholders workshop

Date(s) - 15/04/2019
12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Digital Catapult


First ReEnTrust stakeholders workshop, focusing on the topic of trust in algorithmic mediated online services; policy and practice, technical matters, and understandings.

During this workshop we will start by providing an introduction into the ways in which the ReEnTrust project is investigating trust in algorithmic services and possible tools for trust mediation. We will then hand out a number of case studies on loss of trust. The intent is for these to serve as discussion starters to that we can hear from you about your concerns regarding trust in algorithmic services and your thoughts on methods how to manage this trust.

We are inviting participants from a wide range of disciplines and sectors in order to gain a broad perspective on the issues and to hopefully provide you with a valuable opportunity to gain fresh insights. Participants will come from:

  • academia from multiple disciplines (e.g. Engineering, Computer Science, Internet Research, Law, Business Schools, Schools of Education and Science Technology & Society studies)
  • public sector organizations (e.g. European Commission, Nottingham City Council)
  • private sector organizations (e.g. Bibblio, Samsung and Amazon)
  • third sector organizations (e.g. Doteveryone, 5Rights, Mental Health Foundation, Polka Theatre)

Where: The workshops will take place at the Digital Catapult in London (101 Euston Road, NW1 2RA, London).

When: April 15th, 2019 from 12:15am to 5pm.

Privacy/confidentiality and data protection

All the workshops will be audio recorded and transcribed. This is in order to facilitate our analysis and ensure that we capture all the detail of what is discussed. We will remove or pseudonymise the names of participating individuals and organisations as well as other potentially identifying details. We will not reveal the identities of any participants (except at the workshops themselves) unless we are given explicit permission to do so. We will also ask all participants to observe the Chatham House rule – meaning that views expressed can be reported back elsewhere but that individual names and affiliations cannot.

A short report on the outcomes of the workshop will be circulate among all the ReEnTrust stakeholder panel members (including those that could not attend the workshop) for comments, feedback and corrections.
