Digitalisation has become a byword for growth and prosperity in society, but it has also become a controversial and contributing cause of crises of confidence in society. The pace of technological development is accelerating trends in society towards populism, polarisation, conspiracies, conflicts and increased inequality. This is entwining environmental, social, political and economic crises and fostering general distrust in society’s traditional institutions.


The Algorithms, Data and Democracy project has been recently awarded 100 million kr. from the VELUX and VILLUM foundations, in order to unite computer science, social sciences and humanities in the development of new algorithmic solutions dor the benefit of citizens and society, over the next 10 years. Christina Lioma leads the computer science part of the project, which aims to address issues of algorithmic bias and generalisability.
