The Brussels Privacy Hub (BPH) is organising a Doctoral Seminar series to give the opportunity to Ph.D. candidates working on privacy and data protection topics at the Law, Science, Technology and Society (LSTS) to present and discuss their work in progress. The aim of the series is to offer Ph.D. students at all research stages a training ground to refine and practice debating their scientific work, as well as receive qualified feedback and questions from their peers and privacy and data protection experts. Each seminar will include a short presentation by the Ph.D. candidate, followed by an open discussion with the audience. Seminars are also open to external participants. Find more information here.
On 12 June 2023, 12:30h - 13:30h, Elisabetta Biasin (doctoral researcher at the KU Leuven Centre for IT & IP Law - CiTiP) will present her research, entitled ‘Re-considering the Conceptualisation of Accuracy as a Principle of Data Processing (and Beyond)’.
Abstract: Accuracy is gaining momentum in the context of AI technologies and data regulation. In law, accuracy may have different meanings depending on the specific context of use. In healthcare, for instance, accuracy is a legal requirement of data protection, AI and medical device law. This seminar introduces the research carried out in the doctoral project ‘Reconceptualising Accuracy as a Principle of Data Processing’ and will assume the healthcare perspective. It will outline the increasing relevance of accuracy and offer comparative remarks between the existing accuracy legal requirements in data protection and other laws (including the AI Act, and other healthcare-specific legislation).
