Digitaler Salon: Damage Control

The "Digitaler Salon" event series at the Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) will focus on the importance of automated technological systems and the role of humans as decision-makers in lending, starting at 7 pm.
Dr. Theresa Züger, head of the AI & Society Lab at HIIG, will introduce the event
The following experts will discuss the topic:
  • Aline Weidner, Head of Credit Risk Small & Medium Enterprises and Collateral Management at Commerzbank AG
  • Raphael Rohrmoser, lawyer at ADVOADVICE, specializing in IT law, data protection and social media
  • Hanne Roggemann, research assistant at the Institute for Financial Services (iff)
Moderation: Katja Weber (radioeins/rbb, Deutschlandfunk Nova)
About the Event
No loan because of €1.60 debt? The decision as to whether and on what terms a loan is granted is automated, depending on the amount. The use of automated tools is becoming increasingly popular - whether for granting loans, deleting critical content on social media or medical diagnostics. This requires the evaluation of large volumes of data to arrive at a recommendation or even a final decision. When granting loans, it is often impossible to understand why a loan was not granted: Invoice not paid? Moved too often? Wrong job? The selection and weighting of information harbors a high risk of unfair treatment of those affected. Legislators (still) uphold the role of humans as supervisors and ultimate decision-makers. But are we humans really the secret ingredient for better decisions? What is a 'good' decision in consumer credit anyway? Who has what incentive here and what influencing factors are at work? These and other hurdles - and what else lies behind the human involvement required by regulation - will be discussed in the May edition of the Digital Salon.
The event is part of the Human in the Loop? research project funded by the Mercator Foundation.
Admission on site from 6:30 pm. The program will be broadcast live on the HIIG website from 7:00 pm. Viewers can participate - by X via #DigitalerSalon.
Registration is not required for the event.
The Digital Salon takes place every last Wednesday of the month with a different topic. Recordings of past Digitaler Salon events and more information can be found here.
