Chapter 7 Algorithmic brokers
Restricted access

In chapter 7, we discuss the algorithmic broker; employees who are responsible for 'translating' results of AI systems for users. We first discuss the 'regular' algorithmic broker; who translates the results of the AI system, but gives no feedback to the developers. Then, we discuss the adaptive algorithmic broker, who facilitates feedback to the developers, which in turn provides support for the further development of the AI system. Additionally, we discuss that the risk of deploying an algorithmic broker may be that developers and users no longer develop their knowledge of the domain and the technology, respectively. If no attention is paid to this risk, the algorithmic broker can ultimately turn out to be disadvantageous and leave developers and the users in the dark. We end the chapter by showing that an adaptive broker can support not only machine learning but also organizational learning.
