Responsible and transparent use of algorithmic applications by European Cities
The Algorithmic Transparency Standard helps European cities provide clear information about the algorithmic tools they use, and why they’re using them.
Algorithmic transparency means being open about how algorithmic tools support decisions. This includes providing information on algorithmic tools and algorithm-assisted decisions in a complete, open, understandable, easily-accessible, and free format.
Building on good practice of Amsterdam and Helsinki, and the Dutch Standard for Algorithmic Transparency, Eurocities’ Digital Forum Lab developed an updated version of the Algorithmic Transparency Standard — a common data schema for algorithm registries that is validated, open-source, publicly available, and ready for use in local algorithm registers.
In collaboration with Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Eindhoven, Mannheim, Rotterdam, Sofia, the Eurocities’ Digital Forum Lab developed:
Eurocities is the network of more than 200 cities in 38 countries, representing 130 million people, working together to ensure a good quality of life for all.
