At Espai Societat Oberta we believe that we need to broaden our vision and deepen our technological knowledge to make digital tools our allies. During 2019 and 2020 we dedicated a large part of our agenda to meetings that address issues related to technology, ethics, human rights and social justice. And we saw that there was interest in learning and sharing knowledge. That is why this year, along with Lafede.cat and M4Social, we invite you to this new conference on Artificial Intelligence and Human Rights.
