USA: Algorithmic Justice and Online Platform Transparency Act has been introduced to prohibit harmful algorithms, increase transparency into websites’ content moderation practices, and commission a cross-government investigation into discriminatory algorithms. It’d require online platforms to:
• Describe to users in plain language the algorithms they employ and the information they collect to power them.
• Maintain detailed records describing their algorithms for review by the Federal Trade Commission, in compliance with key privacy and data de-identification standards.
• Publish annual public reports detailing their content moderation practices.
