Recent advancements in data science have led to the development of cyber-physical spaces where humans and machines evolve together.
AI is increasingly being ‘delivered’ through an ever-growing number of consumer and industrial platforms (e.g. transport and healthcare platforms). The ‘platformisation’ of AI raises multilevel legal and ethical challenges regarding the platform itself, its customers, contributors and end-users.
This conference focuses on these challenges from the assumption that the emerging global AI platforms should be ‘interoperable’ not only at technical but even more so at legal and ethical level.

SINTEF Seminar on Data Sharing Ecosystems
The emergence of data sharing ecosystems as part of the wider digitalization process in the society indicates the important role data will play in driving future economic competitiveness and societal progress. We see a number of data ecosystems in the form of Data Spaces and Data Platforms being created and deployed nowadays for industrial and/or personal data. But how widespread are such data spaces/platforms? How can they enable large-scale data sharing? What are the organizational, legal, and technical challenges of data spaces/platforms? What solutions currently exist?
The goal of the seminar is to stimulate discussions and exchange of knowledge and experiences around these questions.
