Algorithmic Futures Policy Lab
workshop 2

Human-Machine Collaboration in a changing world 2022

Paris / hybrid: 1-2 December

This workshop will focus on the challenges and opportunities collaborative systems pose for technological development and policy design. For more details, please visit:

Workshop 3

Algorithmic Design for Uncertain Futures 2023

Canberra, mid-2023 (Date TBA – likely April)

This workshop will explore challenges presented to technological systems by socioeconomic and climate change, with the aim of informing how to influence the robustness of these systems through policy creation.

workshop 1

Social Responsibility of Algorithms 2022

Social Responsibility of Algorithms 2022 (SRA22) was held virtually on 13-17 June 2022 (UTC).

SRA22 was the third workshop in the SRA series, and focused on algorithmic fairness, explicability / interpretability, trust, privacy, and decision autonomy, with the aim of identifying mutually influential challenges and opportunities for technology and policy-development in EU and Australia.

SRA22 was a collaboration between ANU Centre for European Studies, ANU School of Cybernetics, ANU Fenner School of Environment and Society, DIMACS at Rutgers University, and CNRS LAMSADE. It was organised by Katherine Daniell (ANU), Joseph Guillaume (ANU), Fred Roberts (DIMACS), Alexis Tsoukiás (LAMSADE), Kathy Reid (ANU) and Elizabeth Williams (ANU).

About Algorithmic Futures Policy Lab

The Algorithmic Futures Policy Lab (AFPL) aims to catalyse the work needed to successfully design technology and policy for an uncertain future. The AFPL team is currently working to create workshop experiences in which participants explore what responsible algorithmic development and policy-making might look like in light of future global socio-economic and environmental uncertainties, with a specific focus on relevant upcoming governance challenges and opportunities in the European Union and Australia.

The Lab series includes three workshops:

  • Social Responsibility of Algorithms (SRA22) will focus on algorithmic fairness, explicability/interpretability, trust, privacy, and decision autonomy, with the aim of identifying mutually influential challenges and opportunities for technology and policy-development in EU and Australia. This continues the work started in SRA17 and SRA19. SRA22 will be held online on 13-17 June 2022 and has an excellent lineup of keynote speakers planned.
  • Human-Machine Collaboration in a changing world (HMC22) will focus on the challenges and opportunities collaborative systems pose for technological development and policy design.
  • Algorithmic Design for Uncertain futures (ADU23) will explore challenges presented to technological systems by socio-economic and climate change, with the aim of informing how to influence the robustness of these systems through policy creation.

The workshops are free for invited participants, and represent a collaboration between ANU Centre for European Studies, ANU School of Cybernetics, ANU Fenner School of Environment and Society, DIMACS at Rutgers University, CNRS LAMSADE, University of Canberra, and EnsadLab, laboratory of the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs – PSL University.
