    Contagion: Battling COVID-19 and Future Pandemics with AI and Robotics

    COVID-19 has eclipsed the once-sunny national and world economy. At the same time, the U.S. healthcare system is under unprecedented strain, as it struggles to provide enough hospital beds and breathing apparatuses for patients and personal protective equipment for healthcare workers. How can AI help to track, diagnose, and treat COVID-19? Can telepresence robots facilitate treatment and minimize healthcare workers’ exposure to affected patients? This panel will discuss the technology and resulting legal issues of using AI and robotics to battle COVID-19 and future pandemics.

    Speakers:
    Heather B. Deixler, Counsel, Latham & Watkins LLP [Moderator]
    John Byrnes, Principal Computer Scientist, Advanced Analytics Group, SRI International
    Derek Forman, Founder/Chairman, ClearFocus Innovations
    Mark Hanson, CEO, Decoded Health, Inc.

    2:30-3:30 pm ET

    Systematic Bias: AI as Cause and Cure

    The new national dialogue on race relations following George Floyd’s death has sparked new dialogue about bias in artificial intelligence systems. Hiring, lending, and housing systems might discriminate because of the design of AI systems or the data used to create them, but they also hold the promise of decreasing bias. Media and legal journal articles have identified bias as a risk, but specific methods of mitigating bias are in short supply. This program goes beyond issue-spotting to provide actionable advice on mitigating bias in developing and operating AI systems. The panel also will cover methods to avoid discriminatory practices by companies operating robots, such as security and service robots.

    Speakers:
    Natalie A. Pierce, Partner and Chair, Labor and Employment Practice, Gunderson Dettmer [Moderator]
    Jeffrey Brown, Diversity and Inclusion Research Fellow, Partnership on AI; Assistant Professor of Psychology, Minnesota State University, Mankato
    Raluca Crisan, Co-Founder, etiq.ai; Director of Data Science, Merkle | Aquila
    Travis LeBlanc, Member, U.S. Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board; Partner, Cooley, LLP
