Transparency and trust in the age of algorithms: the new EPRA podcast explores the user's perspective


EPRA is very pleased to share with you its second podcast featuring the topical challenge of how to ensure plurality in the age of algorithms.





This time, EPRA Vice Chairperson Mari Velsand invites our panellists, Dr. Ansgar Koene (Horizon Digital Economy Research institute), Anna-Sophie Harling (NewsGuard) and Prof. Francisco Lupiáñez-Villanueva (Open Evidence), to discuss:

  • the concepts of transparency, trust and critical engagement in the context of journalistic news content increasingly curated and delivered to audience by means of algorithms.
  • the role of regulators, journalists and the tech industry in ensuring that online news consumption better supports pluralistic and engaged democratic discourse.


The podcast is accompanied by a list of reading materials recommended by our panellists for further interest.
