Automated decision-making

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Automated decision-making (ADM) generally refers to a process or a system where the human decision is supported by or handed over to an algorithm. ADM is increasingly used in several sectors of our society and by different actors (both private and public). For instance, ADM can be embedded in a standalone software that produces a medical recommendation for a patient, an online behavioural advertising system that shows a particular content to a specific target, a credit score system to determine whether one can get a loan, an algorithm that selects the most interesting CV for a position, a recognition filter that scans and bans a user-generated content from a platform, an automated ticketing system which fines drivers exceeding speed limits, an algorithm to assess the recidivism risk, smart contracts (Finck, 2019), etc.
