Editor Evelyn Ruppert responding to Frank Pasquale keynote on ‘The Promise (and Threat) of Algorithmic Accountability’

On Tuesday 26 January, 2016, Frank Pasquale, Professor of Law at the University of Maryland and author of The Black Box Society, will be delivering a public lecture at the launch of LSE’s MSc in Media and Communications (Data and Society). He will be focusing on recent controversies over the “right to be forgotten” and alternative credit scoring (such as proposals to base loan approvals on qualities of the applicant’s social network contacts), and propose reforms essential to humane automation of new media and banking. Editor Evelyn Ruppert will be responding to his lecture.
