Science and Technology Committee (Commons)
Report published on Wednesday 23 May 2018. Awaiting Government Response.
This inquiry examines the increasing use of algorithms in public and business decision making. It assesses how algorithms are formulated, the scope for error or correction and the impact they may have individuals—and their ability to understand or challenge that decision.
The Committee continues the previous Committee's inquiry, taking forward the evidence it received previously.
Evidence given by Elizabeth Denham, Information Commissioner; Margot James MP, Minister for Digital and Creative Industries, Oliver Buckley, Deputy Director, Digital Charter and Data Ethics, and Andrew Elliot, Data Protection Bill Manager, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
