Automated decision-making processes: Ensuring consumer protection, and free movement of goods and services (B9-0094/2020)

  Łukasz Kohut (S&D). – Madam President, the general definition of automated decision making is the process of making a decision by automated means without any human involvement. This decision can be based on factual data as well as on digitally created profiles or inferred data. Let’s give examples here: an online decision to award a loan or an ability test in recruitment using pre—programmed algorithms and criteria. There are a number of benefits to such decision making – a quicker and more consistent decision among them – but what about risks, the risk of profiling, misuse of data, limiting consumers’ choices. We must be aware of these risks. That is why I voted for the resolution, which calls on the Commission to closely monitor developments in this area.
