Opening the black box: The right to transparent algorithms

Opening the black box: The right to transparent algorithms

Do Better Team

As we continue developing artificial intelligence to enhance human capabilities, we are also entrusting crucial decisions to algorithms. We've grown used to algorithms choosing the advertisements we encounter or the content we consume on social networks, but now they also determine who is the ideal candidate for a loan or a job, and even who should go to jail and who shouldn’t. Algorithms will increasingly influence our ability to access services, yet we know less and less about how they work and why they make the decisions they make. What are the problems posed by this algorithmic opacity? And how can we work towards greater transparency?
