Florian Ostmann is a Policy Fellow in the public policy programme of the Alan Turing Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, London, UK. His research interests are centered around applications of data science and AI in the public sector, ethical and regulatory questions in relation to emerging technologies across all sectors of the economy, and the future of work and social welfare systems. Prior to joining the Turing, Florian was a Research Associate at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy where he conducted research on questions of fairness and transparency in the context of algorithmic decision-making. His work in relation to these topics has focused on translating between conceptual frameworks from statistics, computer science, philosophy, and the law, and on thinking about the demands of transparency from an application-specific perspective. He has also worked for the Pan America Health Organization and as a consultant on responsible investing (with a focus on modern slavery risks), autonomous vehicle policy, and social impact measurement. Florian serves as a member of the Law Committee for the IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems. He holds a Master in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School and a MA and PhD in Political Philosophy from University College London.
Florian Ostmann will participate in the World Justice Forum working session Algorithms in Justice and Justice in Algorithms: Fairness to Whom?
