Banner image – Algorithmic decision making and its human rights implications – a NoC event

With the alluring possibility of technology freeing us from the need to make decisions in all areas of our everyday lives, a sincere concern is arising with regard to the preservation of free will in matters as crucial as the formation of public opinion, political decision-making and activity in online communication spaces.
Algorithms, which also enter physical terrain via IoT, directly influence human behaviour both online and offline. The need for new meta-norms that can ensure an ethical process of technological innovation and acknowledge human rights when it comes to algorithmic decision-making is a pressing matter to be discussed.

AlGORITHMIC DECISION MAKING AND ITS HUMAN RIGHTS IMPLICATIONS 
hosted by the Hans-Bredow-Institute for Media Research (HBI) and
the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG)
12 to 13 October 2017 | Sirius Minds Berlin | Französische Str. 12.

These are the issues our workshop on algorithmic decision making and human rights seeks to address. Benefiting from multiple points of view brought to our discussion panels by the Network’s guests and experts of the Network, we will jointly seek to explore and exchange views on the shifts, tensions and new perspectives that innovations in the field of algorithmic decision-making bring to the status and protection of human rights. By unpacking the participants’ numerous research efforts, we will be able to shed light on this broad theme, uncover further common research interests and build upon diverse methodological backgrounds.
