Right to Explanation of Automated Decision Making
Kate Vredenburgh is a philosopher who works on political and ethical issues surrounding technology. The overarching motivation guiding her research is to understand how background commitments influence modeling in the social sciences and computer science, to reflect on how they should, and to build fairer models on that basis. She is also interested in the political and ethical questions inspired by the use of technology by corporations and by governments, and is currently working on a project defending a right to explanation of automated (and non-automated) decision-making. She was a Carr Center Technology and Human Rights Fellow in 2019.
