With the “Atlas of Automation” AlgorithmWatch aims to map the state-of-the-art of automated decision-making (ADM) systems in Germany from a participatory perspective.
Firstly, a report will be published on the use of ADM: Where is ADM used in the education and healthcare sectors, for instance, and who is affected? In addition to capturing / mapping the status quo, the Atlas will present a list of sectors in which trends are emerging in Germany that have already unfolded in other countries. The report also includes an overview of regulatory approaches and a classification of key actors in the field.
Secondly, an online database will be offered for research purposes, which will probably contain more than 150 entries at the beginning, including not only specific software products, but also methods, actors in the field and regulations.
The database (German) as well as the report (German, English) will be published by the end of March / beginning of April 2019.
