Agenda: Content Moderation & Removal at Scale Conference

http://dside02.cblue.be/google/como/images/header_matin_new2.png

Tuesday 05 Feb 2019
09.00-13:00
Altiero Spinelli Building A1G-3, European Parliament, Brussels 



The “Content Moderation & Removal at Scale” conference will explore how Internet companies develop and implement internal rules and policies in the area of content moderation. What are the challenges they currently face to moderate or remove illegal and controversial content, including hate speech, terrorist content, disinformation and copyright infringing material? And how could or should future European regulations affect these practices? 

Operational facts and figures about these practices are hard to come by, especially within a European context. This conference aims to fill that knowledge gap, and will critically assess the moderation and removal of third party/user-generated content (UGC) by these companies in the EU.

The conference is open to the public. It will be recorded and live-streamed.
