Interim reports published on Online Targeting and Bias in Algorithmic Decision-Making

The Centre for Data Ethics (CDEI) have published the Centre for Data Ethics & Innovation’s interim reports for our two major Reviews into Online Targeting and Bias in Algorithmic Decision-Making.

These reports set out the issues that the Centre for Data Ethics are addressing and their approach, an update on their progress to date and how they will spend the next few months as they work up towards final recommendations to the Government.

Alongside these reports, they have also published landscape summaries which have informed each review and summarises the academic, policy and other literature in these two areas.

The Centre comments "While our Calls for Evidence have formally closed, we are keen to continue to work with and hear from interested parties and stakeholders across these issues".
