Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Algorithms: Regulation, Governance, Markets
Kyushu University, Japan - Nov. 21-23, 2019
Algorithms are increasingly controlling, shaping, governing or regulating products, decisions, and judgments. Yet, these algorithms are often ‘black boxes’, identifying that there is still lots of obscurity surrounding their operation. To prevent that this leads to either under- or over-regulation, a better understanding of the debates on algorithms across disciplines is necessary.
To achieve such an understanding, our aim is to bring together experts with a background in technology, economics, sociology, and ethics to address the many uncertainties — both practical and normative — surround the scope, direction and effects of algorithms and related technologies. This international and multi-disciplinary event aims to contribute to a better understanding of the diverse and complex issues surrounding the emergence of algorithms.
