Data are everywhere in personal and professional environment. Algorithms making sense from these data are pervasive in more and more digital services. Algorithmic-based decisions are embedded in several domains ranging from the processing of personal data to sensitive data in critical industrial systems (autonomous cars, conversational agents, health-care and well-being or public services etc). Rising benefits from Big Data and AI technologies have wide impact on our economy and social organization. Transparency and ethics of such algorithmic systems (conjunction of data and algorithms) become increasingly important properties for trust and appropriation of digital services. Challenges of transparent and accountable-by-design data management and analytics methods, geared towards humans, will be presented and discussed together with TransAlgo initiative.
