Mission Statement
The more technology develops, the more complex it becomes. AlgorithmWatch believes that complexity must not mean incomprehensibility.
AlgorithmWatch is a non-profit research and advocacy organisation to evaluate and shed light on algorithmic decision making processes that have a social relevance, meaning they are used either to predict or prescribe human action or to make decisions automatically.

HOW DO WE WORK?

Watch
AlgorithmWatch analyses the effects of algorithmic decision making processes on human behaviour and points out ethical conflicts.

Explain
AlgorithmWatch explains the characteristics and effects of complex algorithmic decision making processes to a general public.

Network
AlgorithmWatch is a platform linking experts from different cultures and disciplines focused on the study of algorithmic decision making processes and their social impact.

Engage
In order to maximise the benefits of algorithmic decision making processes for society, AlgorithmWatch assists in developing ideas and strategies to achieve intelligibility of these processes – with a mix of technologies, regulation, and suitable oversight institutions.
