Algorithm Accountability: What Government Can Do Right Now

In France, the Digital Republic Law requires that all algorithms used by the government be made open and accessible to the public. Etalab has produced guidance for government agencies on the legal framework and how to publish this information, and is working on practical guidance to build public registers of algorithms. Through this work, France’s citizens can start to see how the government uses algorithms to make decisions that may impact them, laying the groundwork for greater accountability.
