Algorithmic Justice and Equity

algorithmic ethics 101

Though a certain major movie franchise envisioned an earth that couldn’t stop the rise of robot overlords, the IDH has hope that we can stop this mechanized insurrection by calling for humans, rather than algorithms, to analyze other humans.

Not convinced algorithms are a problem? Still sound like science fiction?

 

Well, let us introduce you
-- gently --
to how algorithmic discrimination
is already becoming
a way of life in employment decisions. 

(And to Chinese Social Credit Scores
which is where we might be headed
if we let algorithms continue unchecked.)

Here's how we describe the inherent problems
with algorithms in our national pilot curriculum
(for high school students)
with the Anti-Defamation League and Bites Media.
