The interdisciplinary research center in Cyprus dedicated to Algorithmic Transparency.

We inform and educate people about algorithmic bias and collaborate with researchers around the world.


About CyCAT

The Cyprus Center for Algorithmic Transparency (CyCAT) is hosted at the Open University of Cyprus, the second public university in Cyprus and the only one dedicated to open and distance education.

We collaborate with other researchers internationally and have recently teamed up with four leading universities across Europe and Israel through an H2020 Twinning grant. Our team holds key expertise in the algorithmic processes involved in information access, user interactions with algorithmic systems, user-system interaction, as well as the social and cultural implications of algorithmic processes.

Our Key Objectives:

  • Promote digital literacy through raising citizens’ awareness of the ways in which data analytics and algorithmic processes affect their access to information and opportunities
  • Develop computational methods, personalized tools, as well as innovative training and education programs
  • Promote a Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) culture
