„Citizen Scoring in the EU – it happens at home, not only in China!“

On May 7th Matthias Spielkamp (Founder and Executive Director, AlgorithmWatch) and
Kristina Penner (Executive Advisor, AlgorithmWatch) talked in a session of re:publica 2019 about „Citizen Scoring in the EU – it happens at home, not only in China!“

Short thesis out of the program: „Several EU governments use automated decision-making systems to score citizens, either to spot welfare fraud, detect whether children are in danger of neglect, or determine how much care elderly or disabled persons should get. AlgorithmWatch’s research shows that these systems are deployed much more widely than commonly known in many countries in Europe, and that they lack oversight and accountability.“
