Applied Machine Learning Days – AI for Media & Democracy
By joining forces, C4DT and IMI aim to offer a track dedicated to societal issues related to information and technology, at the intersection between media and trust in the digital world.
Applied Machine Learning Days – AI & Healthcare
The track “AI & Healthcare” aims at bringing together researchers from academia, public health, start-ups and industry to share experiences and best practices, to jointly discuss the potential of AI in the transformation of healthcare towards a trustworthy system with improved patient and society outcomes.
The Rule of Law, Democracy and the Future of Europe in the Age of Artificial Intelligence
The Rule of Law, Democracy and the Future of Europe in the Age of Artificial Intelligence in collaboration with Fondation Jean Monet pour l’Europe and EPFL.
Applied Machine Learning Days – AI & Cybersecurity
In this track, we explore the role of AI for cybersecurity – its blessing and its curse – and how the private sector, government and academia should collaborate to reduce the threat landscape of AI systems as well as to isolate them with safeguard mechanisms that make it easy to shut down if things start to go wrong.
Campus Lecture with Chelsea Manning
Chelsea E. Manning is a technologist and network security expert whose actions showed the world that the conscience of individuals can make urgent change through bravery and determination. She speaks on the social, technological, and economic ramifications of Artificial Intelligence, and on the practical applications of machine learning. She is a vocal advocate for government transparency and queer and transgender rights as @xychelsea on Twitter and through her op-ed columns for The Guardian and The New York Times.
AI & Ethics Week
Artificial Intelligence holds great promise for the economy and society. It has also led to the explosion of new ethical challenges, such as biased decision making, filter bubbles, data protection, face recognition, deep fakes and cyber security.
During this week we aim to create awareness of the ethical and privacy dilemmas with AI, explored from 4 different angles – business impact, cultural, technological and regulatory.

Fin & Tech Conference 2021 on Crypto-assets and Asset Tokenization
Decentralized Ledger Technology has the potential to reshape the traditional financial system. An example is decentralized finance, which allows people to combine open-source building blocks into sophisticated financial products utilizing DLT. Central banks, as another example, face growing competition from private actors offering their own digital alternative to physical cash. However, the current lack of clear legal and technological standards prevents market players and institutions from fully exploiting the potential DLT.
This conference features latest research and insights on crypto-assets and asset tokenization, and their impact on banking and financial market infrastructures. The event combines a broad spectrum of stakeholders, which combine legal and regulatory, technological, financial and economic as well as civil society perspectives. It addresses academics and practitioners alike, and shall foster the public dialogue and interaction across institutions.

Digital Trust 2025
This conference will take place on October 15th, 9:00-17:00, at the Maison de la Paix of the Graduate Institute, Geneva (IHEID). It will address a number of key questions: How does a lack of digital trust manifest itself today? Is this justified, based on current privacy and security issues, or is it exaggerated? Understated? What lessons can be learned from other sectors on how to build the trust that will be needed for our digital future. What is possible in the digital future, and what will be lost without digital trust? And finally, how should that digital trust be built?
The event is jointly organised by IHEID’s Centre for Trade and Economic Integration (CTEI) and EPFL’s Center for Digital Trust (C4DT).

Zero-trust cloud week – data protection in the cloud
Today, it’s often more cost-effective to host services in the cloud instead of in its own premises. But how protected is our sensitive data in the cloud? We readily encrypt data in storage and protect it while in transit. But what about when data is “in use”? It is a legitimate concern in increasingly cloud-dominated infrastructures. Moreover, how to make sense of the different laws governing the sensitive data?
During this week we will explore how privacy-enhancing computation technologies complement a zero-trust strategy by addressing the vulnerability of data in use in the cloud. We will also discuss the legal framework which is required to balance economical interest of companies with the individual’s data privacy concerns.

EPFL/C4DT Panel – Should We Trust Digital Immunity Passports?
There is much debate about the use of digital immunity passports as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Such digital tools to certify immunity could help spur economic recovery, but raise ethical and privacy concerns. How to build trust in such a solution? What elements make them interoperable among countries? How is people’s data related to their immunity status governed?
A panel of prominent specialists will discuss these and other questions from 4 different angles – ethical, business, political/governance and scientific – during a two-hour moderated discussion.
