The DWP alongside IT giants, Atos & Capita, have implemented an automated system for the distribution of disability benefits in the UK, under the alias of the Decision Maker. Deemed a violation of disabled peoples human rights by the United Nations this reductive system saw 65% of disabled people wrongfully denied basic financial support in 2016. Resulting in £55.10 per week being stripped away. For many this is the difference between paying rent or eating.
Acting as a synthetic whistleblower, this automaton aims to counter the Decision Maker by recreating the very system Atos & Capita have implemented and making it public, via twitter. Attempting to use the system in order to highlight its faults and, through direct messaging, provide a way for those who need it the opportunity to experience the application process beforehand.
