IADC 2019 Midyear Meeting

Computer   generated   algorithms   pervade   our   daily   lives, although the public at large is often unaware of their existence or their impact. The widespread use of algorithms necessarily has brought algorithmic bias into our homes and offices. Algorithms pervade the legal profession, including civil matters, such as AI issue spotting, who is and who is not recruited for jobs, and what constitutes fraud, as well as criminal matters, such as the length of prison sentences and the likelihood of an accused to commit a crime in the future. This panel will explore algorithmic bias and its impact on the legal profession, including how civil and criminal matters are influenced by the use of algorithms, and what practitioners need to be aware of in this new frontier.

Other Speakers: 

Alfred H. Perkins, Jr., Starnes Davis Florie LLP, Birmingham, AL USA
Dr. Kenneth Serwin, Berkeley Research Group, LLC, San Francisco, CA USA
