Re-humanising automated decision making

Automated Decision-Making is making important but invisible choices for us and our society. How can we participate in shaping this future?

Automated Decision-Making (ADM) is increasingly prevalent in contemporary societies. It is slowly becoming part of our everyday lives, organisations and institutions, often in almost invisible ways. To ensure ADM is ethical and responsible we need to understand the human elements, to ensure that it aligns with societal structures and resonates with and supports the complexity of our future lives.

In this seminar, international keynote Minna Ruckenstein (University of Helsinki) will discuss her research and Julian Thomas (RMIT University), Elizabeth Croft (Monash University) and Ann Nicholson (Monash University) will respond to these concepts and ideas.

Following this seminar we invite you to join us for drinks and networking as we launch our new book 'Imagining Personal Data: Experiences of Self-Tracking' by Vaike Fors, Sarah Pink, Martin Berg and Tom O'Dell.
