The aim of the panel is to show how Data Protection by Design in the GDPR could encourage a holistic Algorithmic Impact Assessment under the GDPR, combining the DPIA requirements with the individual rights related to Automated Decision-Making. The panel wants to analyse what the concept of Algorithmic Impact Assessment is across different legislations and how different layers of automated decisions explanations might contribute to a dynamic DPIA of complex algorithmic data processing. The role of compliance software might also be pivotal in this process. 

• How an Algorithmic Impact Assessment should look like across different Data Protection Legislations? 

• Can Algorithmic DPIA and individual rights in the GDPR be connected in one only tool, as a disruptive and convenient compliance models for all data controllers? 

• Can we imagine several layers of explanation of Automated Decision-Making under the GDPR? 

• Can we “automate” compliance in case of algorithmic decisions?
