Topic: Human oversight of automated decision-making


EU regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Artificial Intelligence Act (AIA) mandate human oversight in automated decision-making processes to ensure fairness and accountability.

  • GDPR Article 22: Grants individuals the right to avoid decisions based solely on automated processing that significantly affects them.
  • AIA Article 14(2): Requires human oversight of high-risk AI systems to protect health, safety, and fundamental rights.
  • AIA Recital 73: Stresses the importance of identifying appropriate human oversight measures before AI systems are marketed or put into service.

Additionally, the 2019 Ethics guidelines for trustworthy AI advocate for "Human agency and oversight" as one of the seven ethical principles to ensure AI is trustworthy and ethically sound.
