Who is in charge of ‘AI’ developments?
- Roos de Jong contributed to a piece of the Rathenau Instituut explaining how constitutional issues arise because AI systems sometimes operate in non-transparent ways and risk violating human rights. → Grip op algoritmische besluitvorming bij de overheid (Dutch only).
- Another Rathenau-reports might be of interest as well in the context of this course. In Urgent Upgrade the Rathenau Instituut demonstrates that digitalisation (including AI) can lead to a wide range of social and ethical issues. Next to privacy and security, issues such as control of technology, justice, human dignity, and unequal power relationships are also pivotal.
- Kate Crawfort explains how AI-systems both reflect and produce social relations and understandings of the world in her book “The Atlas of AI”. → Crawford, K. (2021). The Atlas of AI. Yale University Press.
- Salon Barocas and Andrew D. Selbst address sources of unintentional discrimination. → Barocas, S. en A. Selbst (2016). “Big Data’s Disparate Impact.” Californian Law Review 104, 671.
