Today theu­sa­ge of Big Data Ana­ly­tics and Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence in prac­ti­ce repla­ces pro­ces­ses ofhu­man decisi­on making more and more. Cur­r­ent­ly, in the con­text of wel­fa­re insti­tu­ti­ons the­re ismar­gi­nal explo­ra­ti­on of usa­ge of Big Data yet. The aim of the project„Machine Decisi­on Sup­port inWel­fa­re insti­tu­ti­ons: Usa­ge Opti­ons, Impli­ca­ti­ons, and Regu­la­to­ry Needs (MAEWIN)“ is both todeve­lop a pro­to­ty­pe of machi­ne decisi­on sup­port for the use in Social Work, and to give an over­view­of Ethi­cal, Legal, and Social Impli­ca­ti­ons (ELSI). During the pro­cess of deve­lo­p­ment we have to make­s­u­re to safe­guard demo­cra­tic princi­ples from capri­cious­ness, and to pre­vent the loss of trans­pa­ren­cyand com­pre­hen­si­ble cri­te­ria of decisi­on making. In our speech we will pre­sent the pro­ceed of the­pro­ject. First, we will exp­lain the results of the field explo­ra­ti­on rela­ted to lay­ers and situa­tions ofpro­fes­sio­nal decisi­on making in this con­text: Which kind of data are avail­ab­le? Which data are used(and not used) in the pro­cess of decisi­onma­king? Second, we will show, how to hand­le the­Col­lin­gridge dilem­ma. This dilem­ma descri­bes the pro­blem to com­bi­ne both in a ear­lysta­te, the­pro­cess of planning.
