A new open access publication by Carissa Véliz: Moral zombies: why algorithms are not moral agents.

link.springer.com/article/10.1

"When algorithms cause moral havoc, as they often do, we must look to the human beings who designed, programmed, commissioned, implemented, and were supposed to supervise them to assign the appropriate blame. For all their complexity and flair, algorithms are nothing but tools, and moral agents are fully responsible for the tools they create and use."

It’s important that the European Parliament realises it can stand up for people, and not defend the interests of the big tech platforms.”

New rules of the road are called for—a social contract for data—to get more value out of data while protecting people against harm and ensuring access and representation."

There is a lot of work to do.

We could start by banning trading in personal data :)
