Academy responds to inquiry into algorithms in decision-making

The Academy has responded to the House of Commons’ Science and Technology Committee’s inquiry into algorithms in decision-making.

The inquiry follows the Committee’s recent work on robots and artificial intelligence, and is examining current and potential future uses of algorithms, as well the regulatory and privacy challenges surrounding their use.

The Academy response outlines the benefits of using algorithms and machine-learning in medical research and healthcare delivery, and explores various examples of where these are currently being used. The response is based on input from the Academy’s Fellowship and prepared in the context of a range of the Academy’s policy projects where algorithms and data feature as key driver for innovation and improvement.

The Academy’s response is available online via the Committee’s website, and can also be found on this page and under publications.
