Submission to the UK Science and Technology Committee on Algorithmic Decision Making

Written evidence submitted by The Human Rights, Big Data and Technology Project to the UK Science and Technology Committee’s Inquiry on ‘Algorithms in Decision-Making’

The submission explores the human rights implications of algorithmic decision-making and outlines the conditions under which discrimination may be introduced or amplified within the algorithmic decision-making process. The submission sets out recommendations on a range of topics including transparency and accountability, as well as suggesting possible ways in which the design, testing and assessment of algorithms can be regulated in order to address the potential for discrimination.
