About Algorithm Audit

In 2021, Algorithm Audit was founded on the idea that ethics in algorithmic methods urgently needs case-based experience and a bottom-up approach. Algorithm Audit’s main activities are:

Audit commissions

Forming independent audit commissions for advising on ethical issues emerging in concrete algorithmic practice. Resulting over time in algoprudence.

Technical tooling

Implementing and testsing technical tools to detect and mitigate (higher-dimensional forms of) bias. See our bias scan tool.

Knowledge platform

Bringing together experts and knowledge to ignite the collective learning process on the responsible use of algorithms, including contributions to the public debate relating to the responsible use of algorithms. Read our white papers and op-eds.
