Stakeholder Accountability Survey

Purpose of the study

Who should be accountable for ensuring computer algorithms make fair, just, and moral decisions?
Computer algorithms are used in serious situations to decide how people are treated. For example:
• Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Amazon use algorithms to decide what you see.
• Hospitals, doctors, and insurance companies use algorithms to decide about healthcare.
• Banks use algorithms to decide about your credit.
• Police, judges, and courts use algorithms to decide legal matters
