AlgoTransparency is a software that automatically investigates which videos YouTube recommends to its users on different topics. Their aim is to study the bias of AI of platforms (Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others) and how they filter and recommend content to users today – i.e. helping to analyse the potential impact of this automated distribution of content on elections. AlgoTransparency helped journalists collect data about elections in the US, and the project was covered by The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, the op-ed pages of The New York Times, Le Monde, and France Culture.
