Kreditvergabe im Fokus

To kick off the research project Human in the Loop: Autonomy and Automation in Socio-Technical Systems, the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) is hosting a roundtable focusing on lending. The research project investigates how human participation can improve automated decision-making processes.

The aim of the roundtable is to bring together various stakeholders and shed light on the topic of lending from different perspectives. The results of the discussions flow directly back into research and thus become part of a problem- and practice-oriented research project.

Participation in this event is by invitation only.
About the Human in the Loop Project
Automated decisions are not always error-free. This is because they are based on training data that may contain unintended biases or lack human contextual understanding. This means that individual machine decisions often do not do justice to the individual situations of people. A well-known example is lending, where banks use technological systems to automatically assess the creditworthiness of applicants. This is why there have been longstanding calls for people to be integrated into such processes so that they can monitor the decision-making processes and contribute to improving the technological systems.
The project poses the following questions:
  • How should meaningful interaction between humans and machines be designed?
  • What role do human decisions play in the quality assurance of automated decisions?
  • How can we ensure that this interaction is not only legally compliant, but also transparent and comprehensible?
  • And what requirements apply to the interaction between humans and machines when considering the technical system, the human decision-makers, their context and their environment?
