The health crisis due to COVID-19 is shaping a new reality in which the exchange and access to health data in a secure way will be more and more necessary. In this complex challenge converge both the respect for the individual rights as well as the interests of the patients and the need to promote the research in pursuit of the public interest. To face this challenge, we can find different approaches across Europe. In this webinar, we will present the experiences of three EU-funded projects (BigMedilytics, BodyPass, and DeepHealth), besides an overview of the legal framework and recommendations to enforce both national regulations and GDPR by an expert in data privacy and security.

The new data-driven industrial revolution highlights the need for big data technologies to unlock the potential in various application domains. The insurance and finance services industry is rapidly transformed by data-intensive operations and applications. FinTech and InsuranceTech combine very large datasets from legacy banking systems with other data sources such as financial markets data, regulatory datasets, real-time retail transactions, and more, improving financial services and activities for customers.

We are living in the largest, most dramatic and unexpected social experiment ever, as governments launch a variety of “social distancing” measures to slow down the coronavirus contagion. Also the use of AI and Big Data is being tested as never before: China, Taiwan, South Korea are using massive data collection and smartphones for “track and tracing systems”. In Europe nothing similar has been launched yet, while quantitative models to forecast the spread of the virus are multiplying. In Italy where the pandemic is raging there is a hot debate on the opportunity to follow the Asian example. Nobody has all the answers.
The BDVA community wants to open a discussion to share experiences and evidence about the best way to use data and AI to manage the pandemic and support dentifying the best practices to be recommended and the best ideas to be shared. In this webinar we start the discussion with a few expert speakers reporting on the Asian and ongoing European experiences. But we call on all interested members of the community to participate and share other experiences and ideas to learn from each other.

Human Computation and Crowdsourcing have become ubiquitous in the world of algorithm augmentation and data management. However, humans have various cognitive biases that influence the way they make decisions, remember information, and interact with machines. It is thus important to identify human biases and analyse their effect on complex hybrid systems. On the other hand, the potential interaction with a large pool of human contributors gives the opportunity to detect and handle biases in existing data and systems.
The goal of this symposium is to analyse both existing human biases in hybrid systems, and methods to manage bias via crowdsourcing and human computation. We will discuss different types of biases, measures and methods to track bias, as well as methodologies to prevent and solve bias.
