Freakonomics: No Stupid Questions – Should We Replace Umpires With Robots?

Franklin.ai recommends…

We’re asking the Franklin team to share some of their top pick podcast episodes. Stuart Wishart, Principal Systems Engineer provides us with his:

“This Freakonomics episode discusses the broad notion of why people don’t like using robots or computers for tasks where they’re demonstrably more accurate.  This concept is summarised by the theory of algorithm aversion, which is the idea that people distrust and dislike of robots or computers taking the place of human beings when making important decisions.

Well worth a listen, the key take-away for me was that when people have a little bit of control of what the final decision is, even if this is only a small amount of influence, then they are more likely to use the algorithm.”
