Digital Principles unpacked: Data, Ethics and Open Algorithms

Short thesis

Digital technologies play an ever bigger role in economic and social development around the globe. However, in an ever more connected and digitalized world, development organizations and NGOs need to make sure that the use of technology and data is led by responsibility and accountability, in line with standards such as the Principles for Digital Development.


We will talk with Emmanuel Letouze, co-founder of the Data Pop Alliance, about the ethical dimensions of (big) data in development and a pilot project on open algorithms in Senegal and Colombia as an approach to make AI more human and transparent.
