Algorithmic Impact Assessment

This toolkit has been saved 0 times.

The AIA is a questionnaire designed to help assess and mitigate the impacts associated with deploying an automated decision system. It helps identify the impact level of an automated decision system. It was developed with the Canadian Directive on Automated Decision-Making in mind but it can be applied elsewhere. The questions are focused on business processes, data, and system design decisions.

The questionnaire asks around 60 questions and the results will demonstrate impact level as well as a link where you can learn about what requirements would be under the Directive. The questionnaire takes at least 35 minutes to complete. This is an open source project that can be adapted to suit your needs. It is available in English and French.
