Transparency has emerged as a normatively attractive concept in ethical and legal debates about automated decision-making, data protection, platform governance, and artificial intelligence, among others. Guest-edited by Ida Koivisto (University of Helsinki, Law), this special issue on Transparency in the Digital Environment explores the question whether transparency, instead of offering a solution to the problems of the so-called black box society, turns out to be one of its problems. Join the contributors to this special issue for a livestreamed online conference on May 7, 2021 at uoft.me/transparency.
