Algorithm Control – How to enforce existing law?Algorithm-based decision making processes have found their way into ever more aspects of life. Such systems can have a great impact on the personal life of people and on the society in which they live. Yet, too often they are non-transparent black boxes of decision-making.
However, in a world of auto-learning algorithms it remains crucial that existing laws can be enforced to ensure that opportunities are grasped and risks are minimised. Some of these risks can profoundly affect consumers, who could potentially be discriminated against or misled by decision-making algorithms.
Due to the Internal Market, the European Union should play a vital role in reducing these risks. The designated President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has already announced to put forward a legal framework to regulate Artificial Intelligence within her first 100 days in office. The question how to control algorithm-based processes should be at the heart of this debate.
On behalf of the Federation of German Consumer Organisations Prof. Dr. Mario Martini has produced a study in which he established the fundamentals of a regulatory framework for algorithm-based processes.
During our event we will present this study and put forward tangible recommendations with regard to the regulatory steps the European Union should take within the next years.
