Academic studies and daily headlines talk about the decline of public trust in governments and government institutions around the world.
Adopting these two Sustainable Development Goals we understand that trusted institutions are crucial in order to make changes that our world and our communities urgently require.
One area causing potential distrust of institutions is the use of algorithms to make decisions about the lives of citizens. Such technology offers tantalising benefits, such as the ability to better target government services or funding to areas with the most need.
