A taxonomy of decision-making machines
Focus Area(s): News and Media, Health, Social Services, Transport and Mobilities
Research Program: Machines
To date, no research exists that classifies the growing diversity of automated decision-making (ADM) machines or describes the relations between them. Instead, ADM systems are typically examined as distinct technologies in isolation from each other.
The project draws on the expertise within the Centre, together with published material, to develop an innovative three-dimensional taxonomy. It provides a categorisation of ADM that will support work across the Centre.
AlgorithmWatch is a non-profit research and advocacy organization that is committed to watch, unpack and analyze automated decision-making (ADM) systems and their impact on society.
Data & Society is an independent nonprofit research organization, studying the social implications of data and automation, and producing original research to ground informed, evidence-based public debate about emerging technology.
