Does (Open Code && Open Data) == Trustworthy?

None
With so many badly designed computer programs and unethical data re-use over the last few years, "algorithm" has become a dirty word that reflects misuse of data and poorly justified discriminatory machine-based decisions. Opening the code that makes these decisions allows us to inspect what's going on, but does it become any more trustworthy? Using both written and spoken break-out rooms for maximum inclusivity, we will facilitate discussion on: - What is required to make code and algorithms trustworthy? Is open code enough? - Are there quick "trustworthiness" wins for hesitant coders? (or sneaky bad actors?) - It will also delve into stickier topics: Is badly written (but open source) computer code more or less trustworthy than closed code? - What's the future you'd like to see, and who needs to do what to get us there?
