Algorithmic systems are being implemented in a growing number of areas and
are being used to make decisions that have a profound impact on our lives. They
involve opportunities as well as risks. It is up to us to ensure that algorithmic
systems are designed for the benefit of society. The individual and collective
freedoms and rights that comprise human rights should be strengthened, not
undermined, by algorithmic systems. Regulations designed to protect these
norms must remain enforceable. To achieve this objective, we’ve developed the
following Algo.Rules together with a variety of experts and the interested public.
