A presentation by Mari-Klara Stein (PhD, Associate Professor at the Department of Digitalization, Copenhagen Business School).

Wednesday, 17 November 2021 at 11:00-12:00 via Zoom

"My presentation will discuss a synthesis of two published papers (Burton, Stein and Jensen, 2020 and Gal, Jensen and Stein, 2019) and ideas for future research based on this synthesis. I will focus on the question of how data-driven and algorithmic management can be done responsibly, especially when managing people and not inanimate objects. I cover three core issues that need to be addressed to achieve responsible algorithmic management: (1) What do human managers need? (2) What should algorithms do? And (3) How do human workers respond to algorithms taking the roles of the human manager? I go over six human-data interaction principles that inform the first two questions and discuss employee trust depending on their perceived information-based vulnerability to inform the last question. I summarize the implications of these ideas in terms of responsible algorithmic management as a path to avoiding harmful algorithm games that adversely affect algorithm accuracy, distributional fairness and efficiency as well as human autonomy.”
