How to Tame the Algorithm: Recommendations to Improve the Wellbeing and Context of Delivery App Workers

Learn about the Karisma Foundation (a well-known Colombian digital rights organization) and their recent research and recommendations to tame the algorithms for delivery applications (such as Uber, Rappi, Cabify, and Didi) to make them fairer for the people they employ and support their overall wellbeing and context of delivery app workers. In addition, find out how the issues they uncovered impact delivery workers not just in Latin America, but other parts of the world as well.

Juan de Brigard, Coordinator for Autonomy and Dignity in Karisma, where he studies algorithmic discrimination, AI and Digital Identity, among other topics. He studied philosophy at the Universidad de los Andes, and did a master’s degree in bioethics at the Universidad Javeriana in Colombia.
