"The innovation of Al/ML is its ability to “do” things without “doing” things because they were “done” without a “doer.” Proxy discrimination (or algorithmic pricing) has the same real effects of discrimination (or collusion) but without any explicit human decision being made. The effect still happens in the world, but nobody is responsible. Nobody did anything. Nobody knows for sure how it happened or who was affected. The designers and users are granted plausible deniability. Al as alibi."
