Using digital technologies in the public sector holds the promise of innovation and therewith providing better services. However, what is deeply hidden and invisible is that technology is inherently biased by design. Drawing on different research examples this talk will examine the social consequences of digital technology and how it alters the citizen-state-relationship.

Come and discuss the implications for public governance with Martina S. Mahnke, researcher and lecturer at the IT University of Copenhagen. Martina is an expert in the field of digital technology and wrote her Phd on algorithms and the informed citizen.
