Algorithmic Criminal Justice?

A Symposium hosted by the UCLA School of Law, January 24, 2020.

  • About the Symposium

    Algorithms are playing a growing role in both policing and criminal justice. In theory, algorithms can provide information that can help promote analytical rigor, objectivity and consistency. But they can also reflect and amplify biases inadvertently introduced by their human creators and biases present in data.

    This event convened a diverse set of national thought leaders to engage with a key set of critically important questions on the proper role of algorithms in policing and in the criminal justice system. Topics addressed include, 1) approaches to identify and mitigate algorithmic bias, 2) the unique challenges and opportunities associated with the subset of algorithms that use AI, 3) ways to spur technological innovation so that the positive potential of algorithmic approaches in policing and criminal justice can be realized, while also protecting against the downsides, 4) the relative roles of the public and private sectors in developing, deploying, and ensuring the quality of new algorithmic solutions, and 5) approaches that can help ensure that algorithmic approaches enhance, rather than undermine, civil liberties.
