ORCAA is an industry-leading consultancy firm that helps companies and organizations manage and audit algorithmic risks. It employs an inclusive approach that aims to address concerns from all the stakeholders in an algorithm, not just those who built or deployed it. ORCAA goes beyond traditional accuracy metrics to ask how the algorithm is used to make decisions, and who is affected.
