In der ADILT Ringvorlesung spricht am 25.11. Frau Prof. Dr. Krisztina Karsai von Universität Szeged (Ungarn) zum Thema:
„Algorithms and Criminal Justice“
The forthcoming „ADILT Ringvorlesung” highlights the social-legal environment of criminal justice through identifying and defining the different needs and possibilities of deploying algorithmic decision-making solutions in the distinct stages of the criminal procedure. A peculiar paradox prevails in this area: although no comprehensive policy on the use of algorithms and algorithmic decision-making exists in the justice process, the application of tools using such technology is almost universal and expanding. The lecture will introduce the main challenges in this regard and present arguments why the applications of algorithms within criminal justice are not evidential simply because technology enables it. Seven main criteria are identified, which support explaining both the lack of necessity and the lack of compliance with system-relevant values and characters of criminal justice regarding the application of algorithms. We will have the chance to discuss adaptation traps and the myth of objective truth, the inherent non-mathematisable values of criminal justice, about the ‘bad’ subjectivity (whether or not subjectivity of the judge should be excluded), and the purity of the data will be addressed as well.
