Investigating algorithmic systems: Algorithm auditing

Track 01 – Re-imagining the digital public sphere

Algorithms are playing a crucial role in all aspects of life from employment decisions, to credit scores to criminal justice processes. They are being used to make very important decisions which have life-changing consequences and these decision-making processes are largely unaudited. An algorithm is a procedure or a formula often used by a computer to solve a problem. Many algorithms are proprietary and secret which hinder investigating them. However, there is a pressing need to study algorithms empirically, especially to test their fairness. This panel will discuss algorithm auditing as a research design and regulatory tool to identify bias and increase algorithmic accountability.

Speakers :
  • Marc Rotenberg, EPIC
  • Bettina Berendt, Department of Computer Science, KU Leuven
  • Juhi Kulshrestha, Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research at Hamburg University
  • Michael Veale, UCL STEaPP

Moderator :
  • Joris van Hoboken, VUB-LSTS

PrivacyCamp.EU is an annual conference held the day before the start of the annual conference Computers, Privacy, and Datat Protection (CPDP). The event brings together digital rights advocates, members of NGOs, activists as well as academics and policy-makers from all around Europe and beyond to discuss the most pressing issues facing human rights online.

Privacy Camp is jointly organised by EDRi, Privacy Salon vzw, USL-B, VUB-LSTS, the Institute for European Studies and CPDP.
