DigiTax also engages in citizen science research projects.
One of the DigiTax researchers, David Hadwick, has build a website to inform both academics and citizens on the first results of his research. In this first stage he mapped the use of AI tools by tax authorities in the EU, the function of these tools, the data that is used and the legal grounds if applicable.
The citizen science approach allows every visitor to contribute to this part of the research by reporting useful additional or new information for the website.
You can visit the website here.
More information on the entire phd research project entitled "Deus Tax Machina: The use of artificial intelligence by tax administrations in the EU and its implications for taxpayers’ fundamental rights" can be found on the webpages of Antwerp Tax Academy
