AI in Criminal Justice: Automated Decision-making Tools and Technology, From Policing to Corrections

Join us for a panel discussion regarding AI in the criminal justice system, from policing to corrections. Our panelists will discuss automated decision-making tools used by law enforcement, prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, and corrections officials.  They will explain a panoply of tools, including genealogical DNA investigations, predictive policing technologies, risk assessment algorithms and facial recognition technology.  The panel will offer perspectives on the purported benefits of the tools, and the potential harms of the tools, especially adverse racial impacts. In addition, the panel will discuss new technologies and other tools now available to defense counsel to help level the playing field with the resources available to prosecutors.
