Mapping ADM Across Sectors
Focus Area(s): All
Research Program(s): All
Focussing on the historical and conceptual approaches to the relationship between data and automated decision-making (ADM) systems, this project situates key issues in historical context and canvasses the range of theoretical approaches brought to bear on describing ADM and assessing the social issues, concerns, and potentials it invokes.
Given the historical focus on data as a locus of concern (with respect to ownership, privacy, accuracy, bias, security, accountability), the data contribution focusses on issue mapping across sectors. The project compliments and draws on the work being done in other research programs and areas to discern common themes with respect to the issues raised by the collection, storage, and use of data for ADM across object domains.
