The Pew Research Center has released Public Attitudes Toward Computer Algorithms.
Here's an excerpt:
At a broad level, 58% of Americans feel that computer programs will always reflect some level of human bias—although 40% think these programs can be designed in a way that is bias-free. And in various contexts, the public worries that these tools might violate privacy, fail to capture the nuance of complex situations, or simply put the people they are evaluating in an unfair situation. Public perceptions of algorithmic decision-making are also often highly contextual. The survey shows that otherwise similar technologies can be viewed with support or suspicion depending on the circumstances or on the tasks they are assigned to do.
