About the Network

OGP convenes an informal network of implementing governments, mobilizing a cross-country coalition of those working on algorithmic accountability. The network currently includes countries that are implementing reforms on opening algorithms, including through commitments in their OGP action plans. It includes representatives from the Governments of Canada, Finland, France, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Scotland, and the United Kingdom.

The network convenes quarterly to discuss issues around implementation. The network meetings also include civil society partners and other experts, based on the topic of discussion.

Learning from the First Wave of Policy Implementation

As governments increasingly turn to algorithms to automate decision-making for public services, the AI Now InstituteAda Lovelace Institute, and OGP are partnering to launch the first global study evaluating the initial wave of algorithmic accountability policy.

Open Algorithms Blog Series

This blog series is informed by the perspectives of participants in the Open Algorithms Network convened by the OGP Support Unit. These bring together government reformers advancing algorithmic accountability, including through their OGP action plans, along with civil society partners working on the topic. The OGP SU would like to acknowledge the members of this group for sharing their experiences and informing policy dialogue on this set of evolving issues.

Gender and Artificial Intelligence

Three Recommendations for More Inclusive and Equitable AI in the Public Sector

See how OGP members are working to better understand and address the gender-differentiated impacts of algorithms, reduce human biases, and create artificial intelligence programs that are trustworthy, ethical, and inclusive.


Algorithms and Human Rights: Understanding Their Impacts

Human rights algorithmic impact assessments have emerged as an accountability tool to identify potential harms, mitigate unintended impacts, and inform policy decisions on the use of algorithms across key policy areas including health, and education.
