Several OGP members including France, Netherlands, and New Zealand are using their OGP action plans to advance transparency, participation, and accountability of government algorithms. In the case of the Netherlands, their 2018 commitment on open algorithms brought together 150 people from all walks of life, including civil society, artists, and scientists to raise awareness and talk about the government’s use of algorithms. Their recently submitted 2020 commitment on open algorithms aims to improve on these efforts with increased focus on oversight.
