Algorithmic accountability has become a key issue of concern over the past decade, following the emergence and spread of technologies embedding mass surveillance, biased processes or racist outcomes into public policies, public service delivery and commercial products.
Despite a growing and diverse community of researchers and activists discussing and publishing on the topic, legal professionals across the world have access to very few resources to equip themselves in understanding algorithms and artificial intelligence, let alone enforce accountability. In order to fill this we launched the Open Knowledge Justice Programme, which aims to develop learning resources, training programmes and legal strategies to enforce accountability in this area.
To find out more about this work, join us for a free webinar from 4pm to 5:30pm BST on Thursday 30th April 2020 which will cover an introduction to automated decision systems and unveil the methodology we have developed for legal professionals to investigate them and enforce accountability.
