Heel Holland Transparant (De Correspondent)

For De Correspondent I helped setting up an experiment on social and risk scoring, called Heel Holland Transparant. This social experiment ranks 70 random Dutch citizens according to publicly available information, hereby simulating the every day practices of governments and businesses that are increasingly resorting to scoring models, which categorise citizens based on their personal and aggregated data. The experiment criticises these methods, as information that is taken out of its context can often lead to false predictions and therefore wrong decision-making. I did the research for the experiment.

View the experiment on a separate website here.
