Are we ready for AI judges?
As automation is increasingly deployed to assist or replace human decisions, it becomes crucial to evaluate potential social and ethical consequences of AI powered decision-making.
Peter Eckersley will be discussing the Report on Algorithmic Risk Assessment Tools in the U.S. Criminal Justice System recently published by The Partnership on AI (PAI).
This report raises serious concerns on risk assessment tools in the U.S. criminal justice system, most particularly in the context of pretrial detentions. Issues include:
Bias in the tools themselves;
Problems with the human-tool interface
Questions of governance, transparency, and accountability.
