Today, complex analytics underpin many important decisions that affect us as individuals, as businesses and as societies. With so much riding on the output of data and analytics, significant questions are now emerging about the trust placed in the data, the analytics and the controls that underwrite a new way of making decisions.
How do we know a result is right or that automated decisions are doing the right thing? What does “right” really mean and to what extent does it matter? And who should be the judge? As analytics goes mainstream, questions surrounding trust will continue to evolve – not only across most sectors, but also for regulators, policymakers and those who safeguard consumer rights.
