A concrete proposal to improve the DMA

A few weeks ago, Nicolas Petit kindly invited me to discuss the Digital Markets Act (“DMA”) at the European University Institute. I had prepared one slide for my presentation (above). I thought I would develop my thinking further in a post. Here goes. The DMA appears mainly concerned with the redistribution of wealth. It takes existing digital infrastructures as set,...

Digital Markets Act: a conservative piece of regulation

The Digital Markets Act (“DMA”) is a complex piece of regulation. It includes some great ideas (as tackling predatory innovation) while being surprisingly conservative (defined as “​the wish to resist great or sudden change” by the Oxford Dictionary). Chapter III intends to “set out the practices of gatekeepers that limit contestability and that are unfair” (p. 13), but one...

A list of open-access resources to learn computer science

With each passing day, our societies become a little more digital. In this context, I decided to list free access resources to learn the fundamentals of computer science (basic programming, artificial intelligence, blockchain, cryptography…). These resources do not require any prior technical knowledge; they are all accessible, fun, and academic. I classified them per field of expertise and level....

Documenting computer science resources for social scientists

EDIT: here are the results! Thank you! *** Dear all, I have created this short Google form to document open-access resources that could help social scientists (lawyers, economists,  political scientists, psychologists…) learn (about) computer science (broadly speaking, being basic programming, AI, blockchain, cryptography…). I will make the final list open access on www.leconcurrentialiste.com. Thank you very much for...

Why “future proof” regulation is a bad idea

One day, we will be in a position to develop evolutive regulation. The law will modify on “its own” using different machine learning systems adapting to their environment. “Future-proof” regulation will then become not only possible but also very handy. In the meantime, it is… not a great idea. At all. Let me explain. Our world evolves constantly. Complexity science...

“Control = liability”: exploring Section 230, the DSA, Big Tech, Wikipedia and Blockchains

Control equals liability. Anyone who controls an area, product, or service—whether physical or digital—is responsible for what happens there (or with it). There are some exceptions to this rule, but the principle remains. For instance, the manager of a bar is liable if a customer trips over a case of wine. Similarly, the manager of...
