CDEI partner with RUSI on the use of algorithms in policing

News, 30 July 2019
The Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation has commissioned RUSI to carry out independent research into the potential for bias to occur in predictive analytics technologies being developed by police forces.

The CDEI will use the findings of this research to co-develop, with the policing sector, a code of practice for the trialling of predictive analytical technology in policing. The code will seek to mitigate algorithmic bias and address wider ethical concerns.

RUSI will publish initial research findings in September, alongside the CDEI’s draft code of practice, which will be circulated for consultation. The CDEI will publish its final report on the review into bias in algorithmic decision-making, including recommendations to the Government, in March 2020.
