Abstract [en]

The use of automated decision-making support, such as algorithms within predictive analytics,will inevitably be more and more relevant and will be affecting society. Sometimes it is good,and sometimes there seems to be negative effect, such as with discrimination. The solutionfocused on in this paper is how humans and algorithms, or ICT, could interact within ethicaldecision-making. What predictive analytics can produce is, arguably, mostly implicit knowledge,so what a human decision-maker could, possibly, help with is the explicit thought processes.This could be one way to conceptualize an interactive effect between humans and algorithms thatcould be fruitful. Presently there does not seem to be very much research regarding predictiveanalytics and ethical decisions, concerning this human-algorithm interaction. Rather it is often afocus on pure technological solutions, or with laws and regulation.
