CERN celebrates Data Protection Day with ESA, EMBL and ESO



On 30 January, CERN joined forces with the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO) to host the 2023 edition of Data Protection Day, which was held online.

This year’s discussions focused on the theme of artificial intelligence. More than 400 attendees listened to the various talks on this new technology that has changed our daily lives.

All speakers emphasised the need to regulate the use of artificial intelligence so that it remains ethical and respectful of the privacy of all those involved with it.

Lively question and answer sessions, as well as the results of a survey distributed to participants, attested to the growing concerns surrounding artificial intelligence in society, in particular regarding data protection. But the event also highlighted the interest and excitement sparked by AI – participants were keen to learn more about its concrete implications in everyday life.

If you want to discover or rediscover the webinar, you can watch the recordings on the Indico page of the event.  

We would like to thank all of the organisations involved for their work and contribution to making this webinar interesting and informative.
