Technology vendors are now selling computer systems that decide whether you get a job or housing, what you pay for health care, how your community is policed, how much bail is set, and how long your sentence is. Public agencies are widely, quickly, and invisibly adopting these systems without transparency or safeguards. Because these systems use biased and often flawed historical data to make decisions, the risk to civil rights and liberties is great and must be addressed. Tell Olympia to create commonsense safeguards for government use of automated decision systems.
