Acts and responsibilities

Activity: Talk or presentation (speaker at event)Talk or presentationAcademic

Description

There is an increasing accountability gap in the law when it comes to the use of technology such as (self-learning) algorithms. In this presentation, I consider the question of responsibility for acts (or omissions) performed by or with algorithms – in law, ethics, and more generally. Can algorithms be said to act and subsequently be held responsible for those acts? I hope to discuss what (if any) dimension the answer to this question adds to responsible data science by design.
