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.

Autonomie in Zeiten von Verantwortungsdiffusion durch Algorithmen

21 September 2022
14:00 – 19:00 CEST
JLU Gießen

Programme

Interdisciplinary Conference

The conference “Autonomie in Zeiten von Verantwortungsdiffusion durch Algorithmen” hosted by ZEVEDI project group Diffusion of Responsibility through Algorithms aims to examine normative and social problems with respect to autonomy as well as personal and institutional responsibility under the conditions of algorithm-based decision-making in the realms of state, economy and society. Based on two exemplary fields, phenomena of shifting and blurring responsibility as well as their consequences for individual autonomy will be analyzed and discussed from different perspectives – including panel discussions with participants from academia, civil society and NGOs.
