Algorithmic Accountability and the GDPR

Publication Date: 
23.05.2018

Algorithms are now used in making significant decisions, from credit determinations to hiring, but they are largely unregulated under U.S. law. In this seminar, Prof. Kaminski will identify three rationales behind calls for regulating algorithmic decision-making (dignitary, justificatory and instrumental), and will propose a two-pronged system of regulation combining individual rights and collaborative governance, based on the interplay between private and public partnership. Prof. Kaminski will analyse the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as an example of such two-part system, and will discuss how these approaches both help and hinder each other.

The seminar is co-organized by the Jean Monnet Module Europe Regulates Robotics and the LATT - Law, Artificial Intelligence and the LATT - Law, Artificial Intelligence, Technology & Trust Research Group.
