ABSTRACT

A MODA representative, computer science ethics expert, and a criminal justice advocate should share tactics for evaluating whether the “automated decision systems” – or algorithms aiding decisionmaking – used by the City are explainable, fair, and equitable. A press release announcing the Automated Decision Systems Task Force is coming later in April and its first official meeting in mid-May. This workshop would be one of the first times City officials come together with advocates to discuss these topics.
