Title Ethical decision-making with Algorithms and Machines
Abstract Decisions that affect human beings have to more and more be done with the help of alogrithms, and other more sophisticated computerized means such as data-mining, machine-learning, or simply "Big Data". What kind of risks does this have in regard of potential ethically harmful consequences? I will present some initial investigations into some examples where harmful effects can be found. It can highlight some limitations in the use of algorithms and how they can invoke unfair generalizations, when it comes to people.
