Automated Decision-Making Systems in the Public Sector: An Impact Assessment Tool for Public Authorities

AlgorithmWatch Switzerland and AlgorithmWatch have published the new paper “Automated Decision-Making Systems in the Public Sector: An Impact Assessment Tool for Public Authorities”. The publication was written by DSI team member Michele Loi in collaboration with Anna Mätzener, Angela Müller, and Matthias Spielkamp.

With the tool, the authors aim to contribute to the discussion around impact assessment of ADM systems by providing a concrete proposal on how ethical principles can be operationalized in the context of such an assessment. The checklists they have developed for this purpose are directly applicable as a tool for public authorities.
