About this event

Frustration with the impenetrability of social media black-box algorithms unites critics of platform power whether they are concerned with platform "censorship" or amplification of harmful content, or simply want more insight into how platforms work. At the same time, there is increasing awareness of the potential harms and discrimination that can result from algorithmic decision-making beyond social media. Algorithmic transparency and auditing are increasingly becoming a component in technology governance, with the rise of an auditing industry as well as provisions included in US and European (draft) law related to digital platforms.

Join GMF for a panel discussion on algorithmic auditing, where we will consider best practices in auditing and identify governance gaps that might prevent audits from being most useful in advancing goals of accountability and harm reduction.
