Review into bias in algorithmic decision-making

by Maria Bianca Armiento

The document Review into bias in algorithmic decision-making (by the UK Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation) discusses the possible impact that bias could have on decision-making processes especially when it comes to algorithmic decision making and reviews four sectors in which algorithms are used: recruitment, financial services, policing, and local governments. Finally, it addresses possible challenges arising from bias in decision-making: they include the need of enabling fair innovation, adapting the regulatory framework and ensuring transparency.
