Discussion

In order to ensure the adherence to the Principles for Accountable Algorithms and to publicly commit to associated best practices, we propose that algorithm creators develop a Social Impact Statement using the principles as a guiding structure.

This statement should be revisited and reassessed (at least) three times during the design and development process:

  • design stage,
  • pre-launch,
  • and post-launch.


When the system is launched, the statement should be made public as a form of transparency so that the public has expectations for social impact of the system.

The Social Impact Statement should minimally answer the questions below. Included below are concrete steps that can be taken, and documented as part of the statement, to address these questions. These questions and steps make up an outline of such a social impact statement." ([1])
