Our Algorithmic Impact Assessment Report helps affected communities and stakeholders assess the use of AI and algorithmic decision-making in public agencies and determine where – or if – their use is acceptable. Algorithms in government are already a part of decisions that affect people’s lives, but there are no agreed-upon methods to ensure fairness or safety, or protect the fundamental rights of citizens. Our AIA report provides a practical framework, similar to an environmental impact assessment, for agencies to bring oversight to automated decision systems.
