The European Commission is working on the Digital Single Market Strategy in order to ensure a fair, open and secure digital environment. On March 28th, the special advisor of the EC – Guillaume Klossa – published his report “Towards European Media Sovereignty”. We asked digital age leaders from the V4 countries whether the EU should work on a common solution to safeguard information sovereignty at the European level, and what measures should be taken?
Information sovereignty cannot be overlooked on the European level.
An ideal common solution would ensure protective measures against the weaponisation of information as well as attempts of using media as a tool of political impact.
The rapid development of Artificial Intelligence along with its tools and ubiquitous presence of algorithms in many areas of modern life and the infosphere should be an alarming signal for European lawmakers. Information sovereignty cannot coexist in any way with algorithmic bias (widely seen as a threat tightly attached to automated decision-making processes in many fields).
