Algorithmic Justice and Equity
wHAT IS #nEIGHBORSnOTnUMBERS?
Most folks don't even understand what an algorithm is.
Let alone how algorithms are already replacing human judgment
-- in inaccurate, discriminatory, and unconstitutional ways --
that are already affecting citizens of all walks of life.
Which is why the IDH has spent the last 18 months
building diverse, bi-partisan coalitions
of academics, lawyers, programmers, politicians, advocates,
to help communities (and companies)
get on the same page when thinking and talking about
algorithmic assessment, regulation, and reform.
We call this #NeighborsNotNumbers.
Our partners on #NeighborsNotNumbers have included:
The Anti-Defamation League
The Kelley School of Business at Indiana University
The Little Earth Native American HUD Community
The Minnesota Department of Health
along with all of the Minnesota state representatives and city council members who were kind enough to talk to us.
