Algorithmic Accountability Policy Toolkit

AI Now published the Algorithmic Accountability Policy Toolkit in 2018. It is specifically tailored towards advocates concerned with government use of algorithms. The toolkit provides a FAQ, an overview of various types of algorithms used by governments in specific application areas such as public health or criminal justice, and a comprehensive list of relevant literature.

The fact that this is a toolkit and not a paper can be seen from the very practical guidance that is offered. For example, this toolkit offers a guide for advocates on how to request public records. In this practical manner, the toolkit supports advocates in promoting accountability for the use of algorithms.
