On Tuesday, September 20, 2022 from 6 p.m. at the RiffRaff cinema in Zurich, the prizes for the best entries will be ceremonially presented.

    The insight that the project team from AlgorithmWatch, the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) and the University of Zurich will provide into the development of the "(Un)fair Algorithms" project will be just as exciting.
    An almost unlimited sea of ​​data enables highly efficient systems to make rapid decisions about our lives. But are these good for us humans and our open society? Will we get more freedoms or will new forms of discrimination emerge? The "(Un)fair Algorithms" project was created for the Planet Digital exhibition in Zurich. Specialists from computer science, ethics and video worked together on this. At this event, they will present the results, talk about the creative processing of scientific findings and look to the future.

    Guests:
    Dominika Blonski, Data Protection Officer of the Canton of Zurich
    Tobias Urech, Algorithm Watch Switzerland
    Producers of the submissions to the data protection video competition
    Members of the expert jury of the data protection video competition
    Moderator: Elia Rohrbach, social media host at Swiss radio and television SRF

    Admission is free. The event is accessible without a festival ticket.
