Algorithm Fairness Label –
A kind of seal of approval for automated systems with the aim of detecting unethical algorithms in terms of fairness and transparent communication.
To make an algorithm fair, it must be clearly communicated that you are dealing with automated decision making processes.
Informations have to be retraceable and communicated transparently.
Information has to be fully accessible. Unpleasant information has to be communicated equally.
Humans have to be integrated into the decision making process of algorithms.
Potential consequences caused by the algorithm must be assessed.
With playful animation, simplified shapes and friendly colors, the process of algorithmic decision making is presented here. The algorithm runs through various parameters, such as gender, age, etc. to make the decision.
