WhereCPDP conference, Petite Halle Les Halles de Schaerbeek, Rue Royale-Sainte-Marie 22, 1030 Brussels
WhatSystems for automated decision-making or decision support (ADM) are on the rise in EU countries: Profiling job applicants based on their personal emails in Finland, allocating treatment for patients in the public health system in Italy, sorting the unemployed in Poland, automatically identifying children vulnerable to neglect in Denmark, detecting welfare fraud in the Netherlands, credit scoring systems in many EU countries – the range of applications has broadened to almost all aspects of daily life. This begs a lot of questions: Do we need new laws? Do we need new oversight institutions? Who do we fund to develop answers to the challenges ahead? Where should we invest? How do we enable citizens – patients, employees, consumers – to deal with this? Matthias Spielkamp, AlgorithmWatch’s executive director and editor of the report, will present core findings; Brigitte Alfter, director of Arena for Journalism in Europe and coordinator of the report’s research network, will talk about the challenges of coordinating a cross-border team of contributors. There will be ample time for discussion with participants. Breakfast will be served. Seats are limited; please register. (You do not need a ticket for the CPDP conference to attend the breakfast meeting.)
