    The ADS Task Force will review how the City uses algorithms through a lens of fairness and equity for all New Yorkers.

New York City Automated Decision Task Force

The New York City Automated Decision Systems Task Force (ADS Task Force) is tasked with recommending a process for reviewing government automated decision systems, more commonly known as algorithms. The Task Force is the first of its kind in the country, and is composed of representatives from various government agencies and offices as well as partners in the nonprofit, research, and higher education communities.

Many City agencies and offices use algorithms to aid their decision-making. As automated decision systems become more prevalent, New York City will lead the effort to ensure they are used appropriately and align with the goal of making New York City a fairer and more equitable place for all its residents.
