@neauoire it’s ironic because, when coded right, computers can do reproducible, non-partisan decision-making, but why should the computer be coded right
Even ignoring context changes that would turn the automated process into something totally unacceptable, even good and well pondered decisions can turn to deadly outcomes because of unforseen factors.
In that case someone has to be accountable.
Even just because NOT deciding might have saved lifes.
They give you predictable outputs wen fed with certain input. They do not understand either of two.
Humans decide what the input means.
Humans decide the computation to do.
Humans interpret the output, assigning a meaning to sequence of bytes.
That's why computers cannot decide anything.
Who want computers to decide, want to hide their own interest behind computers.
And yet humans feed its input and interpret its output.
(Notwithstanding bugs: algorithms exist only in the minds of people understanding them, what computers blindly execute is software, thus unexpected bugs)
There is no decision taken by computers.
The rest is humans hiding behind them.
