Trust in automated decision-making systems used by Government


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.
