Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schulz
is part of the opening round of the discussion series "Data Ethics" of the Representation of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg to the Federal Government
. Together with other guests from science and practice, he will discuss the use of algorithms and Al in public administration.
The use of algorithms and systems of artificial intelligence (AI) in control and decision-making processes in public administration raises particular questions. Is the use democratically legitimised? What about the protection of fundamental rights? How are the rule of law and effective judicial protection guaranteed by administrative courts? In the discussion we want to explore these questions and examine how these elementary principles can already be firmly anchored in the design of the systems (rule-of-law-by-design)?
