Hi, Im Freyja
I have a session on Sunday On : All things legal
I am a legal and artistic researcher and life-long learner with a background in law, art and sociology. I am interested in digital technology and the development of AI. (robots need data:-)
Previously I have worked as a legal researcher (at KULeuven) on European research projects. Check out OpenScienceLink, which is about developing a platform to not only find and share research datasets but also to help collaboration and open access publishers peer review process. I mainly looked at the legal barriers of developing such a platform. Yes, I love to discuss copyright, database protection, text and datamining issues, (CC)licensing and how to overcome the problem of personal data and privacy when making data open and available for (re)use.

And finally I am looking forward to talk to you to hear more about your worldwide experiences and tackle some of my blindspots on what needs to be done and what I can do more to help achieve this !
