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

  Mick Wallace (GUE/NGL). – Madam President, the shift towards automated decision-making and artificial intelligence will change the way in which consumer markets and our societies in general function. We need to ensure that people are protected from unfair or discriminatory commercial practices and we need to ensure that these processes are transparent and do not involve profiling. In this respect, auditing of automated decision-making should be carried out by independent third parties. People need to be able to contest these types of decisions. The Commission needs to ensure that the EU safety and liability frameworks are fit for purpose and that market watchdogs and other competent authorities are properly resourced and empowered to act. We need to be extremely wary of the concentration of data in the hands of a few private companies and we need to adhere to the principles of the GDPR, specifically in terms of purpose limitation and privacy by design.
