About us

The Knowledge Centre Data & Society (Kenniscentrum Data & Maatschappij) focuses on the interplay between data, artificial intelligence and society. The Centre enables socially responsible, ethical and legally appropriate implementations of AI in Flanders.

The Centre aims to enable Flemish companies, policymakers, regulators and citizens to achieve the greatest social and/or economic benefits of AI. For this it will bring together diverse stakeholder representative organisations and facilitate the creation of tools, advice and recommendations.
