Being Human with Algorithms: ChristianThiel and DominikGolle (zd.b) (EN, 2019-11-19)
In this episode we discuss about privacy, responsibility, law enforcement, and many more highly interesting aspects of the digital transformation. Enjoy!
Christian Thiel (https://www.christianthiel.com) and Dominik Golle are responsible fot the topic platform “Verbraucherbelange in der Digitalisierung” (https://zentrum-digitalisierung.bayern/verbraucherbelange ) at the zd.b (center for digitization Bavaria https://zentrum-digitalisierung.bayern/).
In his PhD, Christian Thiel taught machine learning algorithms to deal with uncertain data and teacher signals. Having experienced the pitfalls of algorithms, today he is thinking about the consequences that a digitisation of all aspects of daily life will have on consumers – and what needs to be done to make digitisation good for humans.
Dominik Golle holds a Master of Public Policy degree from Hertie School of Governance. His deep interest in digital transformation got a boost when working in Nigeria – so one of the thing he is thinking about today is how to improve public policy and company responsibility mechanisms to make the digital life of consumers more agreeable.
