Corporate Digital ResponsibilityConPolicy engages in the debate at the Retail Forum 4.0 in Berlin

Job losses caused by artificial intelligence, arbitrariness by algorithms and severe IT-security weaknesses in toys are just some examples of the issues that are currently publicly discussed in the context of digitalization. Against this background the German Retail Association (HDE) invited to the Retail Forum 4.0. Here the question was discussed, to what extent companies have a social responsibility in the digital economy.  

In a discussion with State Secretary Gerd Billen (German Federal Ministry for Justice and Consumer Protection), Birigt Riess (Bertelsmann Foundation), Stephan Tromp (HDE), Stephan Engel (Otto Group) and Frederik Richter (Stiftung Datenschutz), ConPolicy-Director Prof. Dr. Christian Thorun explained why the topic of corporate digital responsibility is of great relevance and what the limits of such voluntary activities are.
