Celebrating Right to Know 2020 with a timely discussion on the right to access information and the use of algorithms in government decision-making.

This interactive forum was facilitated by Susan Bennett, Founder of InfoGovANZ and covered:
- Case examples challenging algorithmic transparency in government decision-making
- How does automated decision-making technology work?
- The right to access information held in a government record and how that right may also apply to information held by contractors providing services to the public
- Why there is a need for greater focus on fundamental principles of good governance in the design and use of algorithms
- What the future legal frameworks for the public sector will need to encompass for the use of algorithms
- What should government licensing and contracts include in the provision of government services and decision making to meet right to access obligations
