Algorithmic Impact Assessments: A Practical Framework for Public Agency Accountability
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.
AI Now 2017 Symposium Report
Building on the inaugural 2016 report, the AI Now 2017 Report addresses the most recent scholarly literature in order to raise critical social questions that will shape our present and near future. This report focuses on new developments in four areas: labor and automation, bias and inclusion, rights and liberties, and ethics and governance. We identify emerging challenges in each of these areas and make recommendations to ensure that the benefits of AI will be shared broadly, and that risks can be identified and mitigated.
