The Internet Governance Forum 2018, held on December 13th at the Copernicus Science Center, was an opportunity to tackle many issues related to the functioning of the network. The program included, among others, topics such as responsibilities of on-line platforms, copy rights’ reform, free speech on the internet, artificial intelligence and transparency of algorithms.

More than 250 participants - representatives of public administration, business, non-governmental and technical organizations and academia – discussed the most up-to-date issues related to legal, economic and social aspects of Internet’s development and functioning.

The program of the conference was created on a grass-roots level by all stakeholders. A record number of 20 organizations was invited to co-organize the Forum. The overwhelming part of the agenda - the whole block of parallel sessions – was proposed and prepared by them. It related to the topics that are currently the most important for all stakeholders in Poland and Central Europe.

Participants discussed about i.a. challenges and opportunities that AI can bring Polish entrepreneurs, legal solutions for combating an on-line censorships, new educational network (OSE) and digital competencies needed in this new high-tech world or about using part of web tax revenue for fighting fake news.
