Trust and Accountability in a Digital Age

Onora O’Neill | Philosophy


Digital technologies m ay sometimes extend individual autonom y (at least for consumer choices), but need not support public goods, such as trustworthy journalism, shared cultures or democratic debate and deliberation. All too often, content is originated and organised anonymously, thereby short-changing recipients, who cannot tell who initiated speech acts that are distributed by unknown algorithms, whose inventors and controllers remain hidden from them , and whose specific uses may have been paid for anonymous others.
