Event description
What governance mechanisms are needed for the responsible adoption of algorithmic decision-making systems in the public sector?

About this event

In November 2020, the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation (CDEI), an independent advisory body to the UK Government on the governance of data-driven technologies, published a Review into Bias in Algorithmic Decision Making. The review recommends steps that the UK Government, sectoral regulators, and organisations should take to address the risks and harms caused by adoption of algorithmic decision-making systems.

Please join the Hertie School Centre for Digital Governance, British Embassy in Berlin, and the CDEI for a presentation and panel discussion of the review’s recommendations on what role the public sector can play in tackling harms caused by algorithmic systems, including guidance to sectoral regulators and mandatory transparency mandates for public sector adoption of algorithmic systems, as well as a panel discussion of the state of play in Germany and transferability of the review’s recommendations to Germany and beyond.
