Let's See the Evidence! Algorithmic decisions in real life - where and how are they used?

Most studies and reports published in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Algorithmic Decision-Making (ADM) focus on analysing government positions and drafting guidelines for the development and use of ADM and AI. At the same time, too little is known about the prevalence of these systems in real life. We will share state-of-the art information about the practice of algorithmic decision-making processes already in use which we researched for our reports "AUTOMATING SOCIETY - Taking Stock of Automated Decision-Making in the EU" (AlgorithmWatch) and "HELP WANTED: An Examination of Hiring Algorithms, Equity, and Bias" (Upturn). In a first part, we will briefly present excerpts of our research and discuss the substance of it. In a second part, we will share our experience in regard of /how/ we researched the issue and will discuss these experiences. Together with session participants, we will begin to develop best practices and discuss how to disseminated these lessons across civil society.
