Judge Katherine Forrest, a former federal court judge and our guest in this episode, observes that machine learning systems build models from historical behavior that can reflect structural bias or discrimination.  She notes that the inclusion of flawed data in AI models has serious implications for personal liberty, with particular consequences for Black defendants. 

On this episode of our podcast series, we have the wonderful opportunity to discuss with Judge Forrest her observations on AI and what she thinks can be done to help ensure that these tools can lead to fair and just results.
