Accountability in the Algorithmic Economy

by Joshua New

Increasingly, many people are raising concerns that the growing prevalence of artificial intelligence (AI) will exacerbate human bias, manipulate consumers, and cause other harms. Whether or not these concerns have merit, most proposed solutions have been substantially lacking: they either fail to effectively reduce potential harm, stifle innovation, or both. What is needed is a proposal that offers policymakers a viable middle ground that maximizes the potentially vast benefits of algorithmic decision-making while minimizing the risks.

Join the Center for Data Innovation for a presentation of its new report and a panel discussion on how policymakers can hold algorithms accountable while accelerating adoption of AI.
