Wiley Online Library » Policy & Internet
by Adrian Rauchfleisch, Andreas Jungherr

Abstract Disinformation concerns have heightened the importance of regulating content and speech in digital communication environments. Perceived risks have led to widespread public support for stricter control measures, even at the expense of individual speech rights. To better understand these preferences in the US context, we investigate public attitudes regarding blame for and obligation to address digital disinformation by drawing on political ideology, libertarian values, trust in societal actors, and issue salience. A manual content analysis of open-ended survey responses in combination ..read more

Wiley Online Library » Policy & Internet
by Erik W. Kuiler

Abstract Since time immemorial, the hegemonic imposition of cultural and political power asymmetries has resulted in the de jure and de facto exclusion of certain groups from the common weal. Withe the introduction of digital information and communication technologies (ICT), the rifts between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’ have expanded at nearly exponential rates. To provide an instrument for analysing the complexities of bridging the digital and knowledge divides, a conceptual framework is presented that provides different perspectives on agency in the commonwealth and the infosphere, which ..read more

Wiley Online Library » Policy & Internet
by Mateusz Łabuz
2w ago
Abstract The Artificial Intelligence Act (AI Act) adopted by the European Union might serve as a global regulatory reference point. Heated negotiations over the AI Act have shown that reconciling the interests of numerous stakeholders is not an easy task. As well as creating clear and precise rules that would enable implementing effective safeguards for citizens against the manipulative potential of technology. The AI Act introduces the first legal definition of deep fakes and creates a system of protection against their harmful applications, that is based on transparency obligations. I argue ..read more

Digitally skilled or digitally competent? Evaluating the impact of e‐Facilitation on young volunteers in Italy
Wiley Online Library » Policy & Internet
by Francesco Olivanti, Luca Gastaldi
3w ago
Abstract e-Facilitation services are one of the instruments employed by policymakers to foster digital inclusion. Literature has hypothesized several benefits stemming from these services, including positive effects on the tutors (e-Facilitators) in terms of competences and employability. Our study takes advantage of a new e-Facilitation program implemented in Italy—the Servizio Civile Digitale (SCD)—to assess whether the policy is impacting the tutors' skills and to evaluate whether there is a trade-off in effectiveness due to an ambiguous policy formulation. To deepen these aspects, we have ..read more

Data justice in the “twin objective” of market and risk: How discrimination is formulated in EU's AI policy
Wiley Online Library » Policy & Internet
by Jędrzej Niklas, Lina Dencik
1M ago
Abstract Based on a focus on artificial intelligence (AI) policy in the European Union (EU), we explore the dominant approach taken to data justice in policy. More specifically, we ask how the particular issue of discrimination is translated into policy goals and measures as a way to address prominent concerns about AI. Looking at the stage of policy formulation, we provide an analysis of the way (non) discrimination is currently pursued within the EU's AI policy debate through the study of relevant policy documents and public consultations between 2017 and 2023. We argue that whilst the issue ..read more
