Trust in automated systems used by Government

Past Project


To conduct its work programme for 2020, the Digital Council of Aotearoa needed to understand the complex concepts that underpinned its topic: trust and automated decision-making.

Brainbox collated research insights from academic and technical literature. Those insights and Brainbox's participation in the Council's work were used to inform scenario design for a series of workshops and bring clarity to a complex set of topics.

Among other things, Brainbox advised the council to conduct a separate literature review on indigenous data sovereignty, which was led by Te Kotahi Research Institute.

The work was a natural complement to Brainbox's work on legislation as code and the use of coded models of the law in decision-making systems.
