The ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society (ADM+S) was established in 2020 and is funded until 2027. It brings together researchers in the humanities and social sciences, communication and media studies, law, computer science and data science. 

Our research programs and focus areas

Our research is designed to expand, integrate, and apply knowledge of the dynamics of automated decision-making so that it is responsible, ethical and inclusive.

There are four research programs (People, Data, Machines and Institutions) and four focus areas (Health, Social Services, Mobilities and News and Media).
