What is algorithmic discrimination and why is it so important to discuss? How can citizens defend their rights when crossing international borders? Are cities prepared for automated cars?

We believe the citizenry must be informed about these issues to enable them to make choices about their digital lives, and to participate in the democratic processes that govern personal data. At Eticas Foundation, we address these and other critical topics about the interrelationship between technology and society. Our goal is to constantly produce basic, applied and translational research
