Panel description: 

The panel discussed the current developments and expectations with respect to automated content moderation tools, the state of the art in the field of abusive language detection and the implications of the developments of these tools for fundamental rights, including privacy, freedom of expression, non-discrimination and due process. Amongst others, the following questions were addressed: What is the current state of the art of application of automated tools in the online platform industry? What is anticipated for the future? What are the ‘ingredients’ of these technologies and if so, how can their development and application be democratized and organized in ways that stay connected to the marginalized and vulnerable communities they aim to protect?
