Algorithms can be a positive force for equity

?source: Discrimination in the Age of Algorithms, Kleinberg et al. (2019)

The authors of this paper argue that “algorithms are not only a threat to be regulated; with the right safeguards in place, they have the potential to be a positive force for equity.” Their central claim “is that safeguards against the biases of the people who build algorithms, rather than against algorithms per se, could play a key role in ensuring that algorithms are not being build in a way that discriminates.”
