Description

Defeat cancer before it develops. Prevent crime before it happens. Get the perfect job without having to know the right people. Algorithms turn long-wished-for dreams into reality. At the same time, they can weaken solidarity in healthcare systems, lead to discriminatory court judgements and exclude individuals from the labor market.

Algorithms are already deeply determining our lives. This book uses illuminating examples to describe the opportunities and risks machine-based decision-making presents for each of us. It also offers specific suggestions for ensuring artificial intelligence serves society as it should.

Im Projekt Ethik der Algorithmen setzen wir uns mit den gesellschaftlichen Folgen algorithmischer Entscheidungsfindung auseinander. Wir wollen zu einer Gestaltung algorithmischer Systeme beitragen, die zu mehr Teilhabe für alle führt. Nicht das technisch Mögliche, sondern das gesellschaftlich Sinnvolle muss Leitbild sein.
