Algorithmic Sovereignty Summit


Summits are one-day gatherings where a diverse group of people come together to discuss the bigger picture, share insights, and challenge best practices. They are invitation-only and have limited seats, so you need to apply to join a summit.

Hidden algorithms are growing in power and importance. Their logic is often invisible, while their results are manifest.

There is an urgent need for more awareness of decisions made by algorithms about the social and economical context in which we live. The metaphor of a “black box society” is perfect to understand the role that algorithms have taken in our contemporary and highly digitised world.

What is inscribed in such algorithms? What are the consequences of their execution and what is the agency left for the living world? What’s the role of sovereignty considering the ethic of algorithms?
Sovereignty relates to the way a community can influence an algorithm, appropriate it, distribute it, share it and create new ones.
