Shifting Power In Tech

Welcome to the Automated Society! And now?

None
Predictive video surveillance to prevent suicides in German jails; algorithmic risk assessment of domestic violence in Spain; predictive justice systems helping Italian courts decide whether a complaint is sound or not: nothing seems to escape the realm of automated analysis and decision. Yet, much of the debate about algorithmic decision-making systems (ADMS) privileges discussions about lofty ethical norms. Too little is known about how systems are already being used in practice - and how to react. We will share state-of-the art evidence about the practice of ADMS in use, taken from our brand new Automating Society 2020 report, covering 16 European countries. In a first part, we will briefly present results of our research and lay out our recommendations for governance. In the second part we will discuss and develop strategies to protect individual rights and life chances, but also the public good with the participants. The session will be conducted by Matthias Spielkamp, and Fabio Chiusi, editors, Automating Society Report 2020
