Data, not dates

Nobody, I am sure, can be so absent-minded as to believe that there is no urgency to plan the aftermath, to trace the road back to (some form of) business as usual, for when we will be able to get a glimspe of light at the end of the tunnel. A road which will be quite a steep one, and which will put the weakest among us at the risk of not making it.

Admissibility of digital evidence in court

Originality, as a legal requirement, is present in many branches of EU Member States’ civil law. At first sight, Blockchain technologies, Artificial Intelligence and Big data, due to their technical aspects, seem to be incompatible with the originality requirement as it has been developed in the EU Member States’ laws. As a result, the procedural admissibility of evidence produced and developed through these technologies has been questioned. Some Member States have taken legislative initiatives to overcome such issues. The panel intends to assess, through the expertise of panellists from different backgrounds, whether such incompatibility is concretizable and if so, which the legal requirements should be taken into account by policymakers to ensure that the evidence produced with these technologies could be admissible in court. Amongst others, the panel will consider the following questions:

The Portrait of a Young Innovator. An interview with Gian Luca Comandini

Gian Luca Comandini, born in 1990, degree in economics, in 2013 was already amongst the first in Italy to invest in two little-explored (at the time) trends: the blockchain and the social media. This made him one of the youngest innovation leaders, allowing him to co-found the trade association Assobit and the consulting and development company Blockchain Core.

Rerum Cognoscere Causas

RERUM COGNOSCERE CAUSAS, knowing the causes of things, has been the motto of the London School of Economics and Political Science since 1922. Here, following the best tradition of Anglo-Saxon rationalism, great care is taken to distinguish between causal links and mere statistical correlations. In other words, if during summer both the GDP and the energy consumption for cooling happen to increase, we cannot simply conclude that it is air conditioners which boost the economy!
