Lex Cybernetica E17-Human Decision Maker

Can we trust decisions made by algorithms? Those are utilized by managers to choose employees, judges to give verdicts, and much more.

While algorithms are often considered unbiased, or at least less biased than humans, they are in truth as biased as the data-sets that they were trained on, and as they were programmed to be – by oversight or design.

The problems with AI decision making, and the right to have a human decision maker in the loop, are the subject of this episode of Lex Cybernetica, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Federmann Cyber Security Center’s podcast, with Prof. Helmut Aust, Senior Fellow at the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany; Dafna Dror, legal counsel at the Office of the Deputy Attorney General, International Law Division, Human Rights Department And The Federmann Cyber Security Research Center Fellow; Prof. Alon Harel of the Hebrew University; and Lex Cybernetica’s host, Ido Kenan.
