UK commits to redesign visa streaming algorithm after challenge to ‘racist’ tool

The UK government is suspending the use of an algorithm used to stream visa applications after concerns were raised the technology bakes in unconscious bias and racism.
The tool had been the target of a legal challenge. The Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) and campaigning law firm Foxglove had asked a court to declare the visa application streaming algorithm unlawful and order a halt to its use, pending a judicial review.
The legal action had not run its full course but appears to have forced the Home Office’s hand as it has committed to a redesign of the system.
