Data-driven decision making responsibility

“The use of data and analytics does not come without limitations […]. There are considerable risks that the underlying data and analytic algorithms could lead to unexpected false results. […]

Users should be aware of these limitations; otherwise they may (unintentionally) cause social and economic harm (costs), to themselves as well as to third parties.

The risk of social and economic costs to third parties (including individuals) raises important questions related to the attribution of responsibility for inappropriate decisions.”
