Access to data is an obvious requirement for data-driven innovation, but many innovators struggle to access the data they need. In a recent CDEI survey, 86% of vendors of AI and data-driven technologies stated that a number of data-related factors …
The CDEI believes that the government should introduce a mandatory transparency obligation on all public sector organisations using algorithms that have a significant influence on significant decisions affecting individuals. Our report published last week suggests definitions for these terms. But whilst a transparent approach is vital to building a trustworthy environment, we should not assume that greater transparency from public sector organisations will inevitably lead to greater trust in the public sector.
This report draws together the findings and recommendations from a broad range of work. We have focused on the use of algorithms in significant decisions about individuals, looking across four sectors (recruitment, financial services, policing and local government), and making cross-cutting recommendations that aim to help build the right systems so that algorithms improve, rather than worsen, decision-making.
