Mozilla's New Mission – New Chances for Internet Research?

The event is postponed. New date to be announced.

Dr. Stefan Baack
, media and datafication researcher, discusses how recent changes the mission of the non-profit software development organization Mozilla might create new opportunities for collaborations with academia. 

About the Presentation

In recent years, the non-profit software development organization Mozilla has shifted its interests from promoting open source technology (like the open-source browser Firefox) towards issues like algorithmic bias, datafication and agency, and internet governance. The foundation has decided to dedicate the majority of its resources to advocate for ‘trustworthy AI’. This can bring new opportunities for collaborations between Mozilla and academia.

Stefan Baack will present the ‘trustworthy AI’ theme in more detail and show some of Mozilla’s recent activities (like the Internet Health Report) which might allow interesting new research fields and methods.

About Stefan Baack

He focuses on the effects of datafication on democratic visions and practices. His research has been published in journals such as Big Data & Society and Digital Journalism. He completed his PhD at the Research Centre for Media and Journalism Studies at the University of Groningen (Netherlands).
