European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) publish “A governance framework for algorithmic accountability and transparency”.

The Report launched by the Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) was authored by Dr Ansgar Koene, Senior Research Fellow at Horizon Digital Economy Research et al, and develops policy options for the governance of algorithmic transparency and accountability, based on an analysis of the social, technical and regulatory challenges posed by algorithmic systems.

Based on a review and analysis of existing proposals for governance of algorithmic systems, a set of four policy options are proposed, each of which addresses a different aspect of algorithmic transparency and accountability:

  1. awareness raising: education, watchdogs and whistleblowers
  2. accountability in public-sector use of algorithmic decision-making
  3. regulatory oversight and legal liability
  4. global coordination for algorithmic governance
