Open AI Registers for Municipal Algorithms
"Amsterdam and Helsinki today became the first cities in the world to launch open AI registers that track how algorithms are being used in the municipalities.
In a press release, the cities said the registers would help ensure that the AI used in public services operates on the same principles of responsibility, transparency, and security as other local government activities.
“Algorithms play an increasingly important role in our lives,” said Touria Meliani, Deputy Mayor of Amsterdam. “Together with the city of Helsinki, we are on a mission to create as much understanding about algorithms as possible and be transparent about the way we — as cities — use them. Today we take another important step with the launch of these algorithm registers.” (https://thenextweb.com/neural/2020/09/28/amsterdam-and-helsinki-become-first-cities-to-launch-ai-registers-explaining-how-they-use-algorithms/)
