Diffusion of Responsibility through Algorithms

The attribution as well as potential disappearance of personal and institutional responsibility through algorithm-based decision making can be fundamental problems for society, law, economy, democracy and the state. The project group focuses on the effects of algorithmic decision-making in which a blurring and shifting of responsibility can be observed.
