Forging a New Social Contract for Big Tech

Beyond privacy, revised liability laws can hold companies accountable for what they disseminate online. Antitrust actions could check the flow of wealth to the small number of companies that control platforms, aggregators, and algorithms. A lightweight horizontal regulation could add a safety layer to the high-risk applications of artificial intelligence. This discussion will focus on the role for technology companies in the 21st Century and what a new "social contract" could look like for Big Tech – in both Europe and the United States.
