When Is Algorithmic Secrecy Justified?

Event date
10 November 2020
Event time
14:00 - 16:00
Oxford week
Ignacio Cofone and Katherine Strandburg

The phrase "algorithms are black boxes" often highlights the fact that when we rely on algorithms in decision making (e.g. when courts determine the sentence, when banks grant loans, or when employers hire new workers) we cannot easily determine on what grounds the algorithmic decision was made. But software developers and their investors do not always want the algorithm to be transparent. In this event, we will discuss Ignacio and Katherine's research that explores the question "When is algorithmic secrecy justified?".
