Digital Transformation and Its Social and Administrative-Legal Implications. From Homo Sapiens to Homo Digitalis

DOI:  [Google Scholar]
Published: 2023-12-29


The ongoing digital transformation that we are experiencing as humanity requires in-depth analysis at many levels of research. In the field of law and administrative procedure, the issue of automated administrative decision-making in individual cases is of particular importance. That is, the making and issuing of decisions in the process of applying the law. Against this background, a number of concerns and questions arise, not only of a legal nature, but also of a social nature, related to the perception of the human being in an intensely digitally changing reality. As can be surmised, never before in the development of administrative law has the consideration of ethical issues in the context of administrative procedure been so frequently addressed. One of the fundamental questions is whether this act of applying the law, hitherto performed by a human being, can be performed by a device/algorithm?
