Keynote lecture: Ethics & algorithms: from recommendation to prediction

NoLesLaw is delighted to announce that Fabien Tarissan will give a keynote lecture in Helsinki on November 1, 2018:

Ethics & algorithms: from recommendation to prediction.

Machine learning algorithms are presently involved in several aspects of human decision making processes.
In this talk I will introduce the basic concepts used in such algorithms and the objectives they try to maximize.
Relying on online experiments, I will show evidence of the effect of algorithmic recommendations on user behaviour and choices before switching to the judicial and law enforcement contexts and discuss the impact of such applications.
