SLATE participating in the Data Protection Authority's AI Sandbox

May 30, 2021

The Activity Data for Assessment and Adaptation (AVT) project is participating in Datatilsynets ( Norwegian Data Protection Authority) AI Sandbox. The AI Sandbox takes a Privacy by Design perspective where privacy (personal data) is to be taken into account throughout the design and development of digital technologies. Datatilsynet writes (on their English site) "The goal is to promote the development of innovative artificial intelligence solutions that, from a data protection perspective, are both ethical and responsible."

SLATE is very happy that Associate Professor of Law, Malgorzata Agnieszka Cyndecka and SLATE PhD candidate Jeanette Samulesen have joined us in this work and that UiB data protection officer, Janecke Veim, will join us in discussions.

During the Sandbox collaboration with Datatilsynet we will focus on Legal Foundations for the use of privacy data in our Mitt Fagkart application, Data Minimization (using only required data), Algorithmic Transparency, and Communication with Stakeholders.

SLATE (and the AVT team at KS and UDE) has as a goal to use this fantastic opportunity to develop a better understanding of these issues and share our results with the various stakeholders in the Educational Sector, including EdTech companies, so that current and future digital tools for education are based on the responsible use of learning analtyics and artificial intelligence.

Brian Jørgensen, UDE, Municipality of Oslo explains why it is important for the AVT project to participate in the AI Sandbox.
