Algorithm Tips is here to help you start investigating algorithmic decision-making power in society.

This site offers a database of leads which you can search and filter. It’s a curated set of algorithms being used across the US government at the federal, state, and local levels. You can subscribe to alerts for when new algorithms matching your interests are found. For details on our curation methodology see here.

We also provide resources such as example investigations, methodological tips, and guidelines for public records requests related to algorithms.

Finally, we blog about some of the more interesting examples of algorithms we’ve uncovered in our research.
