Jordan Kearns and Aaron Roth Knowledge@WhartonAlgorithms have become part of our everyday lifestyles. Whether one considers jobs, financial loans, health care, traffic, or news RSS feeds, algorithms make several decisions for all of us. While they often make our lives more effective, the same algorithms frequently violate our own privacy and are biased and discriminatory. In their book The Ethical Protocol: The Science of Socially Conscious Algorithm Design, Michael Kearns plus Aaron Roth, professors at Penn Engineering, suggest that the solution is to add precise definitions of fairness, precision, transparency, and ethics at the algorithm’s design stage. https://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/who-is-responsible-for-biased-and-intrusive-algorithms/
