Calviño proposes holding a debate on digital rights in Congress

MADRID, 2 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The First Vice President and Minister of Economic Affairs, Nadia Calviño, has proposed this Wednesday the holding of a conference on the Charter of Digital Rights in the Congress of Deputies, given the impact it will have on future regulations.

Calviño has responded in the Lower House to a question from the More Country deputy Íñigo Errejón about his vision of the effect of algorithms, artificial intelligence and social networks in contemporary digital society.

Errejón has urged the Government to accelerate the implementation of the Algorithm Supervision Agency, the creation of an observatory of eating disorders and the imposition of an obligation on advertisers to alert the consumer if in an advertisement the physique of the actors has been digitally altered.

Calviño has highlighted that he considers the issue addressed to be "very important" for the present in Spain and has assured that the Government acts with "maximum speed" to have tools to control algorithms.

Next Saturday is the deadline for the different municipalities and autonomous communities to send candidacies to host the headquarters of the Algorithmic Supervision Agency. At least 11 localities have indicated their intention to present a proposal.
