DC Attorney General , Karl Racine this week introduced a new bill aimed at protecting the district residents from algorithmic biases.
The new bill makes it illegal for companies to utilize descriminatory algorithms for decision making on key areas of life.
We need to make sure that those algorithms do not have, imbedded in them, discrimination against people,including race and gender class.Not surprisingly, algorithmic decision-making computer programs have beenconvincingly proven to replicate and, worse, exacerbate racial and other illegal bias in critical services that all residents of the United States require to function in our treasured capitalistic society . – DC AG, Kalr Recine
