We believe individuals and communities could build and leverage open-source tools in verifying that TwSw are being met. We point to the use of computable contracts as a mechanism to verify properties of algorithmic outcomes and enable reporting of algorithmic harm. We see this as a new feedback mechanism between technology companies and civil society stakeholders who have the expertise to take action in helping individuals and communities.
